520    Carolyn's parents did not, after all, make genomics 
       history by synthesizing her genome in a lab. She has known
       she is the "Human Hoax" ever since a high school genetics 
       exercise revealed she has trisomy X--a chromosomal 
       abnormality--yet no synthetically constructed genome would
       have such clear traces of natural conception. Many years 
       later, as molecular biologist, she hopes her colleagues 
       never learn of her embarrassing origins. But when someone 
       ransacks her office and lab, she finds professional 
       embarrassment is the least of her worries. Someone 
       believes she has the results of her parents' last, secret 
       experiments, and is willing to kill to get them. But all 
       she has from her parents are their genes--can she find 
       what else they may have left her before somebody else 
       does? In a not-so-distant society, where corporations 
       wield as much power as nations and the line between 
       corporate employee and state authority is blurred, the 
       chase is on. Carolyn may have just too little time at hand
       to unravel the mystery of her parents' final days and to 
       realize the deep consequences for the future of mankind. 
       This fast-paced novel is followed by an extensive science 
       chapter where the author provides a non-technical primer 
       on modern genetics and on the speculative biology behind 
       Carolyn's code.
