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. —Locus
As 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 Review
