Greg Bear's fiction ingeniously combines cutting-edge science and unforgettable characters. It has won multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards and choruses of critical acclaim. Now, with Darwin's Radio, Bear creates a nonstop thriller swirling with provocative ideas about the next step of human evolution. In a cave high in the Alps, a renegade anthropologist discovers a frozen Neanderthal couple-with a Homo sapiens baby. Meanwhile, in southern Russia, the U.N. investigation of a mysterious mass grave is cut short. One of the investigators, molecular biologist Kaye Lang, returns home to the U.S. to learn that her theory on human retroviruses has been verified with the discovery of SHEVA, a virus that has slept in our DNA for millions of years and is now waking up. How are these seemingly disparate events connected? Kaye Lang and her colleagues must race against a genetic time bomb to find out. Darwin's Radio pulses with intelligent speculation, international adventure, and political intrigue as it explores timeless human themes. George Guidall's masterful performance heightens the excitement and keeps you enthralled until the final fascinating word.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[The reader’s] obvious enthusiasm for the text manifests itself in a riveting performance encompassing scientific theory and the requisite romance.” AudioFile
Darwin’s Radio is far superior to other recent thrillers on similar themes…not only because Bear creates fuller, more realistic characters and situations, but also because Bear understands the science behind his ideas more deeply.” Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine
“[The] idea that drives [the story] is an intriguing and nicely presented version of punctuated evolution…Bear is one of a handful of writers in the field who manage both the complexity of the intellectual material and the solidity and depth of feeling required for a ‘novel of ideas’ to be a real novel.” Locus
“Absorbing and ingenious.” Kirkus Reviews
