"The Hidden Genes of Professor K combines imagination, history, and knowledge of the leading edge of medical science to weave an epic tale of greed and intrigue. It takes the reader into the recesses of the human psyche, the hidden corners of history, and the dark matter of the human genome. The secrets are all there."
Professor John Mattick AO FAA,
Executive Director of the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney, Australia
World-renowned scientist, Professor K knows he’s close to a ground-breaking discovery. He also knows he’s dying. With his last breath he anoints Dr Alexandra Delacroix as his successor and pleads with her to carry on his work. Delacroix unwittingly enters a dangerous world of unbridled ambition and greed that threatens to destroy her. Desperate and alone, she turns to celebrated author and journalist, Jack Rogan.
Alistair Macbeth, self-made billionaire and enigmatic founder of Blackburn Pharmaceuticals, has a murky past. He knows he must secure Professor K’s discovery for his empire, or perish. Powerful and ruthless, he will stop at nothing to achieve his dark and deep desires.
Meanwhile, when the parents of a famous rock star, Isis, are brutally murdered, Jack Rogan is asked to investigate.
On a perilous journey of discovery that takes them around the globe, Jack and Lola Rodriguez—Isis’ resourceful PA—join forces with Jana Gonski, a former police officer; Dr Bettany Rosen, a tireless campaigner for the destitute and forgotten; and Tristan, a gifted boy with psychic powers. Together, they expose a complex web of fiercely guarded secrets and heinous crimes of the past that can ruin them all and change history.
Will Rogan succeed? Will the dreams of a visionary scientist with the power to change the future of medicine fall into the wrong hands, or will his genius benefit mankind and prevent untold misery and suffering for generations to come?
An important message from the author
“Gabriel, you have a message for your readers regarding the order in which the books in the Jack Rogan Mysteries series can be read. Could you please explain?”
“That’s right. It is important to keep in mind that the books in the series are NOT sequels, but ‘stand alone,’ and can therefore be read in any order. In short, the reader does not have to start with book one and go from there to understand and fully appreciate the characters and the storyline.”
“But the books are of course linked – right?”
“ They are, but only loosely. Readers who are familiar with the earlier books will recognise subtle nuances, references and links which will add to the enjoyment of the book, but this is definitely not necessary. Each book can be read and enjoyed independently."
“Because each book stands alone?”
“Correct. I would therefore suggest that readers choose the books according to subject matter and not according to the number they occupy in the series, unless they would like to embark on the ‘full journey.’ The best way to do this would be to purchase the books as a set and then read them in the order in which they appear in the series. A great literary adventure; promise!”
