Loved this book... Couldn’t put it down. Really good murder mystery in a fascinating world. Total page-turner. Hope this guy writes another. Hands-down five stars


In the era of synthetic biology custom designed animals are bred to replace machines. Humans have acquired a God-like control over DNA, and are able to manufacture any machine organically.

Dan1 breeds machines for the Biota labs. Starting as a lowly technician on the manufacturing floor, he is thrust into the highest echelons of the world’s most popular blood sport. A strange mixture of sport, politics and personalities leads him straight into the teeth of a hostile work environment.

His new job gets trickier when he starts dating El9, whose life goal is to ban the blood sport. She will use any means to persuade him to join her protest movement. But El9’s unswerving belief in the cause is about to be tested by her father’s extreme plans.

And a decades old murder case is reopened when Dex, the city’s most experienced bounty hunter, is approached by the enigmatic Professor Wilson. Wilson and Dex attempt to set things right, in a world where right and wrong are not particularly well defined.

The First Dan is the opening novel The Biohacker’s Almanac series. When technology has made animals and machines indistinguishable we face the question, what makes us human?
