WELCOME!

Author Michael Ransom

JUST UPDATED/COMING IN 2020:  After dedicating himself to five years of scientific research, Michael Ransom is back with a followup to his award-winning debut in THE APOCALYPSE GENE...a biomedical thriller ripped from today's COVID-19 headlines that follows the young graduate student Ethan Wilde who has made a life-changing... and possibly fatal...discovery about the human genome. His research will expose a decades-long multinational public/private/government cover-up, and at the same time threaten the terrifying aspirations of one private firm's unconscionable plot to hold the world hostage...with a single needle prick and the promise of a cure. The literal fate of the world hangs in the balance in THE APOCALYPSE GENE.
