Gene Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Gene

When Detective James North arrives at a hostage scene at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, he's disturbed to discover that the bad guy is asking for him by name. North has no idea who he is or why he is so important to this man, but when the hostage situation implodes North finds himself injected with a serum that imparts hallucinations, nightmares and memories that are not his own. As the hunt for Gene begins North unlocks the secrets to a very personal battle. His own past has come back to haunt him and it stretches back over 3000 years. This is the story of forgotten Greek warrior Cyclades who fought the Magi Athanatos in the Trojan Wars, and was fated by the gods to be reincarnated seven times, in a cycle of revenge and immortality where he has to fight Gene. But in this incarnation, neither man knows which is which, or why each of them has the instinctive need to kill the other.
