His older brother's lastest hobby: murder?
Josh always spend time online with his brother, Max, in a game called Genesis Alpha. Since Max was in college and using the computer terminals there was the only connection they had. Until one day, Max didn't respond to Josh's instant messages all of a sudden. Josh knew Max was being disconnected. But then a phone call to the house told his mum that Max was being arrested for a girl's brutal death.
Josh was shocked. How could his older brother do something like that? It must be a mistake. That was what he thought. Then the dead girl's sister, Rachel, feign disappearance and hid in his house's shed. She related important evidences to him. Evidences that were proved to be correct. His brother had been tracking down victims on Genesis Alpha. But why? Why would he kill harmless girls? And how did Rachel know about Max?
A book that showed how science came in the way of life. The controversity of clones was a huge one and that had gone against the law of nature. It was not really a triller as I had expected. I liked the cover and don't be mistaken, it would not be one of those kind 'you kill me. so i kill you' books. Looks can be deceiving.
I enjoyed it for some parts and I seriously support Josh's struggles in trying not to become like the exact duplicate of his brother. Could be a quick read though. It was hard to put down because I really wanted to know whether Max was really a killer. I can say no romance was involved at all. Disappointing though. Still recommendable to guys - with the relation to gaming and better still if you have a brother yourself. But don't start following your older brother around though.
