#BLOGTOUR | The Killing Gene – E.M. Davey @EdDavey1 @Duckbooks #bookblogger #bookreview #SummerReads #TheKillingGene

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Killing Gene by E.M. Davey! Thank you to Duckworth Books for inviting me to participate. Check out my review and let me know what you think in the comments!

OUT OF AFRICA, INTO DARKNESS… When an archaeologist goes missing in the Congo basin, Professor Randolph Harkness and young tearaway Ross McCartney go in search of her only to stumble upon a conspiracy to conceal ancient horrors lost to the passage of time. Evading spies and trained killers, can they expose this cover-up? Or will they be buried with it? An unputdownable thriller, The Killing Gene reveals the story of our species, the paradox of the modern mind and our innate predilection for murder…



The Killing Gene was FRICKEN AWESOME. Go buy it and read it. Right now!

E.M. Davey is a brilliant author. It is clear he did a ton of research to make this boo feel super authentic. I absolutely loved that the was a mystery mixed with anthropology. The best part was that it didn’t go way over my head. I understood what was going on because the author made it easy to understand.

This was such a page turning thriller. I could not put the book down and I read it in one sitting. The characters felt real and well developed. I felt like each had their place and kept the story moving. The pace was fantastic.

I can’t say enough good things. I don’t want to spoil it for you. Highly recommended!!
