A scientist working on the Human Genome Project discovers that his insurance company is secretly taking genetic samples from its policyholders. His investigation reveals that the company's profit margin is skyrocketing as at-risk clients are mysteriously eliminated and that the mastermind behind the gruesome scheme may be Ivan Marchenko, the notorious "Ivan the Terrible" of the Treblinka death camp.
From the Publisher:
In a near-future thriller, a scientist's complex battle against deadly diseases is challenged when he and his wife are targeted by an ex-Nazi war criminal and a corrupt insurance company's plot to render them guinea pigs in a bizarre genetic experiment. Reprint.
Geneticist Pierre Tardivel may not have long to live—he’s got a fifty-fifty chance of having the gene for Huntington’s disease. But if his DNA is tragic, his girlfriend’s is astonishing: Molly Bond has a mutation that gives her telepathy. Both of them have attracted the interest of Pierre’s boss, Dr. Burian Klimus, a senior researcher in the Human Genome Project who just might be hiding a horrific past. Avi Meyer, a dogged Nazi hunter, thinks Klimus was the monstrous “Ivan the Terrible” of the Treblinka Death Camp. As Pierre races against the ticking clock of his own DNA to make a world-changing scientific breakthrough, Avi also races against time to bring Klimus to justice before the last survivors of Treblinka pass away.||Winner of the Seiun Award—Japan’s top honor in science fiction—and a finalist for the Hugo Award, Frameshift is classic Robert J. Sawyer, combining a heart-wrenching human story and cutting-edge science into a pulse-pounding thriller that “delivers the real thing with subtlety and great skill” (Toronto Star).||
