book cover
When seventeen-year-old Lucas Marshall tests positive for the M0A1 gene--a genetic abnormality believed to predispose humans toward violence--he is shipped off to an impregnable government facility to undergo a battery of psychological tests aimed at making him crack. Now, having survived their tests and proven his mental stability, Lucas is labeled safe to return home. 

But any hope Lucas has of a normal life is shattered when the van transporting him to the reintegration facility is forced off the road by a group of radicals intent on accessing the facility and exposing its dehumanizing practices. And Lucas is their ticket through the front door.

Spurred by rumors that the facility is secretly holding one of his old friends captive, Lucas and his bunk mate, Chris, agree to infiltrate the testing facility's inner sanctum. Once inside, Lucas's carefully laid plans begin to unravel and he's forced to seek help from those still locked within the facility's concrete walls. But when every genetic test claims your only allies are hardwired to become the next Charles Manson, it's impossible to know who to trust.
