Elbowing into the realm of Clive Cussler and Indiana Jones, Knox posits that a race of barbaric hominids interbred with humans many millennia ago and then disappeared. But their genetic imprint remains and is particularly found in the Kurdish region of southwestern Turkey, where man’s oldest-known site of temple-based ritualistic sacrifice, Gobekli Tepe, is being excavated. (The latter is true.) The book is peppered with scenes of grisly slaughter involving genetic freaks with whom our heroes come into conflict. Narrator Gideon Emery’s grasp of story and storytelling is magnificent; his cultured British intonations are mesmerizing throughout his performance.
