The Silk Code

About This Show

Show Info: Phil D'Amato, New York City forensic detective, is caught in an ongoing struggle that dates all the way back to the dawn of humanity on earth--and one of his best friends is a recent casualty. Unless Phil can unravel the genetic puzzle of the Silk Code, he'll soon be just as dead. Praise for The Silk Code: "Forensic detective Phil D'Amato is one of my favorite characters, and the puzzles he solves are always imaginative, ingenious, and addictive, but Paul Levinson really outdoes himself this time in a mystery involving murders, moths, mummies, the Silk Road, poisons, fireflies, and forensics, all woven into a mystery only D'Amato could solve! A marvelous book!" —Connie Willis "At last we get Paul Levinson's superb forensic sleuth, Phil D'Amato, in full-length novel. . . . Kick back and enjoy a mystery that spans the ages." —Jack McDevitt "The Silk Code is an intriguing story refreshingly rich not only in action but in ideas." —Stanly Schmidt, editor of Analog [An] odd and thrilling mix of forensic detective work, intellectual history, and biological speculation. It's a rare thriller that actually achieves its goals both as a detective tale and work of boldly speculative SF. —Locus As a genre- bending blend of police procedural and science fiction, The Silk Code delivers on its promises... -Gerald Jonas in The New York Times Book Review All donation to this title go to the reader, Shaun Farrell.
