Blog Tour: Review: Mark of the Beast


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.

My Thoughts:

  • I really like the writing style. It's an easy-going narrative with a distinct flow. It makes it incredibly easy to read and enjoy. Anekwe also is a natural writer and is very good at what he does.
  • I have to say, I love Regina. I love her personality and how she goes about her work. She's a good character, and well-written. 
  • Do you know how much I love this plotline? It's so incredible-the "kill-gene". It's such a fascinating topic to speculate as is, but to have an entire book about it? Awesome. I love how it is executed, as well.
