Sarah Wade, MD is a female African-American, emergency medicine physician trying to prove herself worthy of the Chief Resident’s position. She’s under a lot of stress–on the job, with a non-existent social life, and now, trying to pass her Advanced Trauma Life Support course. When she discovers her surrogate patient, a medical student, is actually dying from a stab wound, her life begins to unravel. A misunderstanding with the Chief of Trauma Services threatens her career. Her best friend, Della Winston, witnesses the very public murder of a diplomat, which results in her kidnapping by the assailants.

Sarah’s life becomes entwined with that of Sgt. Seamus O’Connor, a white Irish detective who was first assigned to the medical student murder. His only goal is to solve his case, find the bad guy(s), and, hopefully, see justice … without a lot of “stuff” flowing downhill from the top brass. He gains Sarah’s trust only to find himself smothered with that “stuff.” As the city erupts in racial turmoil, Sarah and Seamus try to find Della, but stumble into a far larger conspiracy. The “Colonel” plans to use his Missouri White Alliance to introduce an engineered, viral combo that could devastate dark-skinned peoples globally.

Description

The Militant Genome is a medical thriller set is St. Louis. Woven into the story are themes about the evil of racism, the threats of biotechnology, and one’s eternal destiny.

The Plot:

A master gene for race? Geneticists say such a thing doesn’t exist. However, the Colonel, founder of the Missouri White Alliance, has devised a genetic weapon capable of devastating dark-skinned peoples globally. He is only weeks, maybe days away from implementing his viral version of racial cleansing’s “final solution,” but there’s one threat to his plan. A hotheaded member of the MWA has become the target of a nationwide police search, and the unwanted attention risks bringing federal scrutiny to the previously unknown white supremacy group.

Sarah Wade, MD, has enough stress as a senior Emergency Medicine resident. She never expected that her discovery of a murdered medical student would inadvertently jeopardize her career, or that the next-day murder of a Nigerian diplomat would lead to the kidnapping of her best friend, Della Winston. The cascade of events pull her – and Seamus O’Connor, the detective assigned to the high-profile medical center murder – into a life-threatening conspiracy of murder, kidnapping, and rising racial tensions.

The issues:

The story explores the issue of racism not just via the major plot line about racial genocide, but also through the unexpected relationship that develops between Sarah and Seamus. She is African-American and he is as white and Irish as they come. They have their Catholic backgrounds as common ground, but nothing more.

The potential threat of biotechnology in the wrong hands should be apparent. The definition of genome is “a full set of chromosomes; all the inheritable traits of an organism.” The genome is God’s blueprint for life. Leave it to man’s “tinkering” to lead to trouble.

The theme of eternal destiny becomes an important turning point in the story. Let’s not spoil it by giving away anything more.
