In the Utah desert is a top-secret government project that has created new life to clean up ecological catastrophe. It's basically a living laboratory that's toxic to human life. For example, there are fish that can eat and digest oil spills. This is the EDN project. When a new type of creature emerges and threatens the life of the surviving scientists, a military group is sent in to get them out of there. One of these scientists is the daughter of a U.S. Senator, which prompts the whole rescue attempt. But these creatures are a combination of earth's top predators--and they are rapidly becoming more intelligent. The soldiers do not stand much of a chance. Of course, it's eventually revealed why these monsters were created and what it bodes for all life on Earth.
This is a cool book. It's JURASSIC PARK combined with SPLICE. If you enjoy monster/attack books such as FRAGMENT or ALIENS, you'll love this. As I read THE GENESIS PROTOCOL I felt as if I were watching a movie.
