Research geneticist David Brooks envisions a whole new world with the progress being made in cloning. Like his colleagues he sees possibilities with organ regeneration, but unlike most of his peers fearing harvesting of humans, David pictures re-creations of Einstein or better yet his twin Daryl, abducted two decades ago ant not seen since. Thus, David hides his recent advancements even with big brother watching him.
However, once successful, practical questions arise as to what to do with Daryl and philosophical-religious issues are brought up. David will learn the answer as his experiments create something deadly. Feeling responsible, David must stop the murders of the innocent.
Readers of cutting edge suspense medical thrillers will appreciate PSYCLONE, a fast-paced cautionary tale that modernizes Shelly's Frankenstein (the book, not the movies).
