Enhancement - by Anthony J. Melchiorri - Black market DNA
Anthony J. Melchiorri is a writer and bio-engineer living in Maryland. He spends most of his days developing cardiovascular devices for tissue engineering to treat children with congenital heart defects. He's also a very competent writer.
Enhancement: Black Market DNA is set a bit more than 40 years into the future. There are driver-less taxis and comp cards (all-purpose communication devices that also serve as credit cards), but this novel is not about the gadgets and the way we live, work, and play in the future, as much as it is about genetic enhancements and specifically the black market for such products.
That black market landed Christopher Morgan in prison for his involvement and almost costs him his life, until a mysterious benefactor has him paroled and offers him a job right back in the field of genetic engineering.
Enhancement: Black Market DNA is a story where the lead character doesn't know who to trust. The people you think are trustworthy, aren't. Those who seem to be evil, may not be as bad as you think. And even the central character is extremely flawed.
Enhancement: Black Market DNA is fast-paced, thrilling and enjoyable read and is available now in paperback and for the Kindle through Amazon.com.
