1st ed. by Michael Cordy.

Famed geneticist Dr. Tom Carter's worst nightmares come true when his wife is slain by an assassin's bullet and his nine-year-old daughter is diagnosed with incurable brain cancer. Carter now needs a miracle to save his little girl; and one is waiting for him in a cave in the Middle East...and in the guarded DNA of the greatest healer in history.
  • I love this book and have been looking for it for years!! I finally put in the right combination of words into Google and viola! The Miracle Strain. If you are interested in seeing what, DNA, the scary possibilities of having a God Complex, a sinister brain and some scientific fortitude all come together as...than give this a read. I was only able to find it on Amazon, I could not find it in any local thrift stores, bookstores or even the library.

    I have been unable to look at tapeworms and DNA the same way since reading it years ago.

  • excellent book about the possible problems with genetic research and the fact that some cures and treatments may be good for some with a disease but can be deadly or ineffective for others. even tells of the guardian, the protection against space invasion that was supposedly put in the sky when god went back to the heavens. also an excellent overview of how corrupt corporations can become.

  • perfect condition very happy with it.

  • "The Miracle Strain" is a good try by first time author Michael Cordy. It has something for everyone. You will learn more about gene therapy than you can shake a stick at (the Robin Cook connection) and you will be engrossed by the Brotherhood of the Second Coming, a religious international cabal, while not focusing on world domination, but which definitely has plans for a new world order - vintage Robert Ludlum. The book even has a 3-word title, which is a Ludlum trademark.
    Dr. Tom Carter seeks the perfect gene to help save his daughter Holly from impending brain cancer. His pursuit causes him to cross paths with the Brotherhood, who originally try to have him killed. The Brotherhood has their own assassins with colorful names like Gomorrah and Nemesis. One of the assassins is even a woman. The Brotherhood, originally formed by Lazarus, is awaiting and has evidence of the Second Coming.
    But because this book trys to be all things to all people, that turns out to be a shortcoming. There is the medical thriller aspect, the hunt for the gene, there is the international intrigue of the assassin tracking Carter down, and there is the religious overtones of the impending Second Coming, reminiscent of the "Left Behind" series. If Cordy could have concentrated on just one of these venues, he might have had a better book. Still a good first try. However, if you would like to see what this story would be like after Cordy had a couple of novels under his belt, try "The Genesis Code" by John Case.

  • Michael Cordy's debut novel "The Miracle Strain" is a superbly written gripping thriller. It is a fast-paced, easy-read page-turner. From the first paragraph you are hooked to the story and the interesting characters. Cordy's character development is simply brilliant. "The Miracle Strain" is an experience that any thriller fan must live. You experience the lives of the characters, day by day, over coming adversities, and seeing the world through their eyes. You soon begin to feel as if you are a part of the story, with the words flowing round you like music. But be warmed this is not for the faint-hearted. Cordy goes into some detail regarding the righteous killings and the harrowing past of several characters, mainly, Maria Benariac & her childhood experiences at a Corsican orphanage and Dr. Tom Carter & his involvement with his mother's suicide. "The Miracle Strain" has everything a modern day thriller should have, from brutal kil! ! lings, undercover operations, secrete treasures, etc. But above all else it has humanity intertwined beautifully between science & technology and faith in God.

  • Imagine the top of the world for a Genetecist. Tom Carter has reached the top - the Nobel prize for developing the "Genescope," a device that reads your genetic coding and tells you your genetic future. Then imagine a long fall. Carter's wife is hit and killed by an assassin's bullet that was meant for him, and worse, the Genescope that won him the Nobel has just discovered his daughter has about a year left to live before the onset of incurable brain cancer. Now, Carter turns to genetics and mythology and miracle, seeking to uncover the genes that would grant a miraculous ability: the healing touch. Colliding with an ancient secret order, the genetics of Jesus, and a conspiracy that crosses continents, Tom Carter is facing a countdown toward his daughter's death, and the potential possesion of the power of life over death being in the wrong hands - perhaps even his own. As far as thrillers go, this was decent - it kept me thinking, was a bit heavy on the gross-factor (torture, blood, and the like was a tad overdescribed in places). The plot of genetics leading to healing powers were very well done, and crossing into the Judeau-Christian mythology was quite a good stroke on Cordy's part. The main villain(s) of the book were sometimes cardboardish, but for just "keep awake" thrills, this was a worthy read.

  • I found Michael Cordy's Miracle Strain definitely a good read. Some aspects are better than others, though, and I wonder if the whole Secret Brotherhood, Worldwide Conspiracy and Mystical Assassin cum Ninja extraodinaire were necessary. The genetic odyssey and the moral questions involved are subject enough to keep us captivated. Some readers found some of the religious aspects irreverent, or "seen through the eyes of an atheist". I think they referred to the banalisation of miracles. To me this is just another instance of a possible rational explanation to natural events. Please... the inquisition is long gone, and even Teillard de Chardin is acceptable. None of this goes against the basic tenets of the Christian faith. Finally, the end is very intriguing, and I suspect there could be a sequel in the making - how will these 13 people use their "Miraculous" new abilities? What moral conflicts will they have - or will they just become immensely wealthy.
