Welcome to the third serialized installment of J.C. Hutchins' SF thriller 7th Son: Descent (part 1, 2), a novel set in present day featuring human cloning, dangerous technologies, and "beyond Top Secret" government conspiracies .
THE STORY SO FAR: Two weeks after the bizarre murder of the U.S. president, seven strangers were torn from their "normal" lives and brought to a secret government science facility. Despite minor differences in appearance, it was clear they were the same man, with identical childhood memories.
These seven "John Michael Smiths" were unwitting participants in a human cloning experiment. Each man — carpenter John, demented hacker Kilroy2.0, marine Michael and the others — were brought here because their creators identified the man behind the president's assassination. It's the man they were cloned from — the man whose childhood memories they all share — a ruthless psychopath code-named "John Alpha."
