The Silk Code Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Silk Code

Phil D'Amato, a forensic scientist working for the NYPD, gets caught up in a strange puzzle when a friend of his dies in his arms - while they're on their way to learn about a shady group of people who use biotechnology to control the world. D'Amato meets dead end after dead end (literally, in that everyone he meets dies), but eventually finds a strange, Neanderthal-like (but freshly dead) corpse in a local library. With that as a starting point, D'Amato is off, hunting for information on these modern Neanderthals, their human enemies and compatriots, their biotechnology, and their plot (of course) to take over the world.
