The Messiah Code by Michael Cordy

1. The Messiah Code

At the moment of his supreme triumph, a man of science dodges an assassin’s bullet and loses everything that truly matters in his life. Now only a miracle can save Dr Tom Carter’s dying daughter: the blood of salvation shed twenty centuries ago.

In the volatile heart of the Middle East, amid the devastating secrets of an ancient brotherhood awaiting a new messiah, Tom Carter must search for answers to the mysteries that have challenged humankind since the death and resurrection of the greatest Healer who ever walked the Earth.

Because suddenly Carter’s life, the life of his little girl, and the fate of the world hang in the balance…

The Crime Code by Michael Cordy

2. The Crime Code

The year is 2008. Violent crime has become a global epidemic, nowhere more so than in the United States. No remedy has been effective. Until now.

Project Conscience promises to be the solution; gene therapy to treat male criminals and cure violent crime, favoured by scientists, politicians and senior law-enforcement. But among their number are those with a more sinister agenda, who would turn the dream of Project Conscience into the nightmare of Crime Zero.

Luke Decker, a criminal psychologist disillusioned with the growing dependence on genetic science, is on the verge of resigning from the FBI when a death-row killer’s whispered revelation threatens everything he believes in and catapults him into the heart of the conspiracy.

Crime Zero is a terrifyingly credible thriller based on technological developments that are already with us. At its core is the story of one man’s desperate fight for self-determination and free will in a world where such qualities are in danger of imminent extinction…

Previously published as Crime Zero.

The Lucifer Code by Michael Cordy

3. The Lucifer Code

Oblivion. Or so believes Dr Miles Fleming, a brilliant, young neuroscientist who has developed a device capable of reading human brainwaves. But when his own brother contacts him after being certified dead for six whole minutes, Fleming wonders if he’s got it all wrong.

His search for the truth uncovers a terrifying religious conspiracy to stage the most ambitious experiment the world has ever seen – to prove beyond doubt the existence of a heaven or a hell.

Previously published as Lucifer.

The Venus Conspiracy by Michael Cordy

4. The Venus Conspiracy

So thinks Professor Bacci when he inadvertently unlocks the biochemical key to falling in love, and develops a drug capable of creating emotions indistinguishable from the real thing.

Determined that the world should benefit from his discovery, he seeks funding and business advice from a private Swiss bank, owned by the secretive Kappel family.

Unknown to Bacci, however, Helmut Kappel sees love as a sickness to be exploited, and has his own plan for abusing the drug’s power – a cynical nightmare of breathtaking arrogance far removed from Bacci’s naive dream of spreading love around the world…

Previously published as True.

The Source by Michael Cordy

5. The Source

Ambitious geologist Ross Kelly has it all: a lucrative career searching for oil across the world and a beautiful, brilliant wife, Lauren, pregnant with their first child. But when Lauren, a Yale academic, deciphers the university’s mysterious Voynich manuscript, which has confounded experts for centuries, everything changes.

An attempt to steal her translation of the Voynich leaves Lauren hovering on the brink of death, and Ross in the depths of despair. He seeks salvation in the ancient manuscript, which chronicles the discovery of a mythic, fabulous garden: an Eden so terrible and miraculous it rewrites the book of Genesis.

The possibility of the garden’s existence offers Ross the only hope of saving Lauren and their unborn child and so he decides to seek the garden out before it is too late.

But he is not alone.

Racing against time, a lethal assassin and a fanatical priest desperate to claim the miraculous garden for his church, Ross’s quest will lead him to a place that will challenge everything he ever thought about the source of life on earth.

The Colour of Death by Michael Cordy

6. The Colour of Death

In a residential neighbourhood of Portland, Oregon, an unknown young woman uncovers a shocking crime scene by inexplicably sensing the evil within its walls.

To the police, she herself is a mystery. She appears on no government records, has no past and can’t even tell the police her own name.

Christened Jane Doe and suffering terrifying hallucinations, she is assigned to Nathan Fox, a forensic psychiatrist struggling with his own demons. Together they must piece together the jigsaw that is Jane’s identity.

Then a sequence of brutal killings terrorizes the city and Fox learns that Jane is the only cryptic link between the unrelated victims.

To solve the murders, discover who Jane is and diagnose her condition, Fox must discard his black and white preconceptions, look beyond the spectrum of normal human experience and confront the dark truth of her past… and his own.
