In this podiobook: Phil D'Amato, New York City forensic detective, is caught in an ongoing struggle that dates all the way back to the dawn of humanity on earth--and one of his best friends is a recent casualty. Unless Phil can unravel the genetic puzzle of the Silk Code, he'll soon be just as dead.Praise for The Silk Code:"Forensic detective Phil D'Amato is one of my favorite characters, and the puzzles he solves are always imaginative, ingenious, and addictive, but Paul Levinson really outdoes himself this time in a mystery involving murders, moths, mummies, the Silk Road, poisons, fireflies, and forensics, all woven into a mystery only D'Amato could solve! A marvelous book!"-Connie Willis"At last we get Paul Levinson's superb forensic sleuth, Phil D'Amato, in full-length novel. . . . Kick back and enjoy a mystery that spans the ages."-Jack McDevitt"The Silk Code is an intriguing story refreshingly rich not only in action but in ideas."-Stanly Schmidt, editor of Analog[An] odd and thrilling mix of forensic detective work, intellectual history, and biological speculation. It's a rare thriller that actually achieves its goals both as a detective tale and work of boldly speculative SF.-LocusAs a genre- bending blend of police procedural and science fiction, The Silk Code delivers on its promises...-Gerald Jonas in The New York Times Book ReviewAll donation to this title go to the reader, Shaun Farrell.

Customer Reviews

The Silk Code

This is an intelligent story that combines loads of interesting ideas and history with good characters. Not a combination you find that often. Thank you for creating this podcast, which is the first book I've ever "listened" to. Made for some good jogs. I'd buy books by this guy. Nice narrating, too.

Friends Must Have Written Above Reviews

Like karaoke, where singing is best left in the shower, this writing was better left upon a shelf. The reader will have you slitting your wrist in two chapters or less. With his best friend only hours dead, our hero finds himself in a house with a beautiful woman fighting-off an erection. I mean, come on...this is junior high grade slop.

Higly Entertaining

The Silk Code was great! Bold concepts and interesting science. I especially like the historical parts. The reader Shaun Farrell was great. Most of the podcast novels have really bad readers but Shaun was perfect aside from some questionable/so so English accents that I grew to like by the end of the podcasts.
