The SATAN Gene

The Satan Gene is a historical fiction novel by author D. W. Eamer. It combines mystery and thriller elements in which the protagonist of the story, Gareth Blackwell, searches all over Italy for clues and specific USB devices. The information combined within those USB devices is going to wreck the whole world. They contain the coordinates of The SATAN Gene program launch codes. It is a program that modifies the human DNA and can activate certain biological phenomena by sending specific frequencies. The instruction and information for all the processes are contained in those USB drives. The dying professor Ashcroft hands over the clues and one piece of the device to Abriana Stratton, who later meets Gareth Blackwell to commence on this quest of solving the clues and retrieving the complete program.

It is a fast-paced mystery and escapes a thriller with a killer constantly behind them. They are later on joined by the DARPA chief and other officials, but as they begin to unravel the clues, more secrets tumble out.

The writing style of this book is interesting and fact-filled. The author has talked about symbols, motifs, and religious allusions throughout the book. The clues were also based on the symbols and motifs related to religion and several religious sects and cults. The protagonist Gareth Blackwell is well-versed in bringing out the historical and symbolical importance of a particular symbol or action. It is interesting to read about all these symbols while staying on a continuous chase that might destroy the world if gone wrong.

There are a lot of characters who remain in focus throughout the book. The special attention remains on Blackwell, shared by Abriana Stratton for a large part of the book. The DARPA chief also gets his fair share of attention in the plot along with the assassin Sicarius. How the author has interlinked the past information and the story’s parallels are brilliant. The story moves smoothly and is fast-paced while pausing to explain the religious and pagan symbols in great detail. The book reminds me of the writings of Dan Brown, except the intervention of local police or security remains minimal in this book.

The twists and turns in the story keep the readers on edge. The sudden revelations and the chase through Rome and Italy lend an insight into the beauty and religious relevance of the city. The symbols and clues solved by Gareth Blackwell provided deep insight into the overall religious history of Christianity. This book does contain some gruesome details about violence and murders that occur, with no lack of visual details. It might be upsetting to some readers.

The Satan Gene is a riveting novel that fans of thriller and religious mystery will enjoy. The action and adventure of the chase, the mystery of solving the clues, and the thrill of evading the killer will have readers on edge and looking for the next clue.
