Mark of the Beast by Adolphus A Anakwe explores the implications of a genetic marker for individuals who are predestined to become criminalsMuch 21st century news and politics are lost in the confusion between correlation and causation This novel builds on this confusion by constantly conflating causation and correlation These two very different concepts are used interchangeably Even troubling the scientists in story jump from tendency a weak form of correlation or causation to predestination Unfortunately for the novel and the world of the novel no one seems to be concerned by thisInstead of investigating of causation or mechanism of action the scientists and others in this novel depend on the Book of Revelations and some dubious numerology connecting their genetic marker HLA B 66 with the Mark of the Beast 666 In addition to scripture and numerology scientists also believe in predestination suggesting this book might be better classified as Occult Fiction not Science FictionFor see won a copy of this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway on December 15 2014 I received my copy on December 19 2014 way to go Tor Books

The premise is interesting Doctors find what appears to be a genetic marker that predicts violent criminality Great In the hands of a skilled author this would be a great setupHamfisted writing poor research and bad math completely ruin it for me At one point an event is to occur on June 6th 9am Chicago time This is told to a person on the West Coast who is apparently knowledgeable of the Number of the Beast and the implication is that the date and time is 667 We never really explore the amount of false positives a 90% accurate test for evil would show and the conseuences of hasty actions on the part of government We are told that so many violent criminals have this variance but we are never shown how many people who have it don't commit crimes The supposedly brilliant scientists never run control studies and never seem to grasp how statistics actually workNever does the book solidly claim that there is any connection to the Beast Just some poorly constructed oddness about how the letter 'B' could be recalculated to be a '6'To the actual writing I find it bizarre how willing the author is to show several extremely violent crimes and rapes including involving children with no real connection to the story and yet he can't bring himself to have the characters say any cuss words stronger than 'Darn'I appreciate the effort the author went to to write this and I can see other people enjoyed the book But I'm afraid I can't recommend this book at all
