EXTINCTION - Even the concept of truth is a lie


EXTINCTION - Even the concept of truth is a lie

The year is 2077 and the planet is reeling from centuries of human abuse. Worldwide, humans and a new race, genetically-evolved numans, compete for survival as water and food become increasingly scarce. Humans face the prospect of extinction at the hands of the numans who, like Homo sapiens when they pushed Neanderthals into extinction, have a small but decisive edge. Investigative author Jack Janis and his golden retriever Max find themselves at the center of world events after they fall for Alice Algafari, an alluring but enigmatic researcher, in their quiet rural village. Jack's hopes for an idyllic life with Alice and Max crash amid conspiracy and lethal risks when Alice's boss tries to ensnare them. Alice, Jack and Max are forced to run for their lives. Meanwhile, Mark Milner is squeezed out of his job at the Numan Broadcasting Corporation, once the British Broadcasting Corporation, and heads for a new life in FedOz as part of a numan government scheme to push humans into emigrating. The life he discovers is far from what he was promised. Alice's boss, a powerful genetics scientist, is caught in the jaws of numan rebellions, World Council politics and the Military High Command's ambition to let civil authorities fail and then take control. His most dangerous enemy, however, is in his own research center. A final showdown between compassion and science erupts in Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, with Max emerging as a key to shaping the future of the planet
