Genre: Inspirational, Mystery/Thriller/Suspense

RT Rating

Hancock tackles controversial themes, such as cloning, but the overly detailed characters and obscure terminology make the plot a bit confusing. Plus, the spiritual aspect is not overwhelming.

A research assistant at Kendell-Jakes Longevity Institute, Lacey McHenry is attacked one evening in the lab. She tries to convince her supervisor, Parker Swain, that there was an intruder, while he tells everyone she's suffering from sleep deprivation and is hallucinating. Mocked for his religious beliefs, genetics researcher Cameron Reinhardt questions the practices going on at Kendell-Jakes. It turns out that his employment might have been for a larger purpose.

Meanwhile, in New Eden, the
Elders and Enforcers are trying to
maintain order within the Enclave.
They believe the "outside world" is toxic. When the two worlds collide, Lacey and Cameron, as well as those in New Eden, will need help from a higher power. Will that be God, or someone a bit more sinister? (BETHANY HOUSE, Jul., 400 pp., $14.99)
