Cloning sheep, cattle, and chimps is only the beginning. Using Fossil Gene Redemption (FGR), geneticist Kevin G. Harrigan experiments with genes from a frozen "Ice Man." His work prompts Iraqi leader Ismail Mon to provide resources for exciting new research that enables Harrigan's team to regenerate extinct animals and human sub-species from the Ice Ages. But when it is discovered that FGR is also the basis for genetic weapons of mass destruction, United States intelligence and defense leaders must act.

The Pleistocene Redemption, radically different from Jurassic Park, deals with two new methods of species regeneration. Will FGR trigger the Resurrection of the Dead? The major religions' prophecies portend the regeneration of humankind as both physical and spiritual. What physical mechanisms could manifest this new dawn? Might they instead herald the terrifying sunset of humanity?

Taking place over the next quarter century, this episodic SF novel seeks to combine thriller, religious tract and cloning a la Jurassic Park--with little success.

(One action scene, involving a bouncing space shuttle, is unintentionally hilarious.) I really didn't care what happened to Harrigan or Freund or anyone else in The Pleistocene Redemption.
