It was born in Dachau to kill today. . . . The Nazi doctor leaned over the body lying in front of him and made the incision. The war was about to end, the final solution a failure. It was his duty to plant the seeds of the next holocaust. The Judas Gene: At first it killed the elderly, the survivors of the death camps. Then the young started to die. Soon reports of terror and fear began coming in from around the world. THE JUDAS GENE is a compelling and frightening medical thriller that begins in the Nazis’ experimental laboratories in Dachau during World War II. At the end of the war, the infected Jews carry into the outside world not only the instrument of their own destruction but also that of their fellow Jews. They are biological time bombs set to go off many years later. The story follows the frantic search for the perpetrator and for a way to identify and stop the virus, “cure” those infected, and protect the Jewish race from another Holocaust. THE JUDAS GENE was originally published in hardcover by Richard Marek Publishers, New York, 1980 and in softback by Ace/Charter Books, New York, 1981. It is being republished today as an e-book for a new generation of readers because of its pertinence to the present international political situation and, to paraphrase a well-known quote, because those who choose to ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.
(It was born in Dachau to kill today... Doctor Thaddeus R...)
It was born in Dachau to kill today... Doctor Thaddeus Reichmann leaned over the body lying in front of him and made the incision. The war was about to end, the final solution a failure. It was his duty to plant the seeds of the next holocaust. The Judas Gene: It began by killing the elderly, the survivors of the death camps. It destroyed their nervous systems so that lings refused to expand or hearts to beat. It only began with the elderly; soon the young started to die. The reports of terror and fear came in from around the world. And in New York, Reichmann sat in his office reveling in his success.
