3 Star #Review of Mark of the Beast by Adolphus A. Anekwe with #Giveaway

Mark of the Beast: A searing medical thriller by Adolphus A. Anekwe, a renowned doctor, about the ramifications of isolating a gene that causes violent behavior

Dr. Regina Dickerson is a Catholic physician in San Diego who has discovered that there is a certain genetic marker that indicates the carrier is prone to psychotic violence. Working on blood from prison inmates, her theory begins to prove itself time and again with violent offenders. The variety of crimes is diverse: one couple murders their children for organ money, another man kidnaps young girls to seduce and kill them, yet another has a penchant for cyanide. 

As Dickerson's work begins to show results and catches the attention of the media, people begin to fear that witch hunts and Spanish Inquisition–style mayhem will result if forcible testing is carried out. Meanwhile, a race begins to find a cure. With science and religion at odds, Dickerson must find her own answers while trying to escape those who want to put an end to her inflammatory research. 
At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Well I have to say that this one would make a really good thriller movie.  The book centers around the thought that violence is controlled by one gene.  I thought that this was pretty interesting.  For years we have talked about Nurture vs. Nature.  And well this gives a great view/aspect on the after math of finding out that its a gene.  

The book was somewhat hard to follow which is why Im giving it three stars.  But I think it would made a great movie.  IT would be an edge of your seat thriller.

More to the Nurture side although all of us has a little natural anger in us...

I think it's a little bit of both.

Nurture, since it seems most people who are too nurtured or not enough often tend to be the most violent.
