This began like an extraordinary book, but somewhat through it I began to think this may just be another Davos diva, and sure enough, that and her bio-startups, et cetera. This book does give credence to the fictional novel by John Burdett, The Bangkok Asset [or a Robert A. Heinlein story from yesteryear, where in a future history he suggests a Chinese genetically-engineered super-soldier army invasion, with their playing around with CRISPR and myostatin reduction???], but otherwise, around the end, I was reminded of the horrors of high school chemistry class where, no matter how hard we tried to exactly follow the lab text, those darn experiments just never turned out right!
