Hominid

(2011)
A novel by

 
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly: "Superior science fiction thriller. . . . Boland's taut atmospherics are top-notch, and the evolutionary themes he explores are easily accessible to nonscientists."

Mystery Scene review: "A riveting scientific suspense novel on the order of the popular Preston and Child thrillers. . . . Boland makes complicated theories about DNA and genetically linked illnesses easily understood. And in contrast to many science-heavy suspense novelists, Boland also has the ability to create three-dimensional characters. [The hero's] love life is a mess; Silas Merton, the island's mayor and only clergyman, is also the town drunk; . . . and even brutish Luther turns out to be much, much more than your average killer. . . . Hominid never fails to make for exciting reading." (Betty Webb)

Kirkus said John C. Boland's DEATH IN JERUSALEM "roars along like a BMW in heat." Now Boland--International Thriller Writers finalist--imagines a species-wide conflict in a fast-paced science thriller. Archaeologist David Isaac joins a team excavating a crypt on a remote island where a colonial-era family lies buried. By local lore, the family were "devils." The expedition's leader hopes to revive his career by proving they were murdered by neighbors in a burst of religious hysteria. But these cadavers harbor an older and deadlier secret. And nobody is prepared for what is about to emerge.
