by F. Paul Wilson

A sci-fi thriller told by God about company that manufactures and leases creatures called sims, which are genetically part human and part chimpanzee. The company has bribed enough politicians to have the sims classified as property of the company rather than as humans with rights or animals who cannot legally be abused. A secret group headed by a man named Zero recruits a woman from a regulatory agency and a male lawyer to dig up evidence against the company and free the sims. The companyís security chief, however, is part of a secret organization that has a lot or resources to use in defense of the company and its secrets. It is an OK story with some timely discussions about the morality of genetic research, but it in not one of Wilsonís best books.
