Genesis is in a predicament. She goes on a blind date and wakes the next morning to find she can remember nothing of the night before and  that she is strapped in a suicide vest with a disembodied voice coming from a earpiece in her ear giving her orders for what happens next.  Genesis has become an agent of mass destruction in a countdown to detonation. The story is chilling, fast moving and almost believable but a good editing would have made it even more so. However, in spite of this it is an addictive read.
