In Double Interest, three young scientists are developing a genetic formula that can alter the world – for btter or worse. But they receive threats because of this formula, and have to find their way out of a chain of plots, lies and schemes. They get targeted by armed drug lords, and the dark side of politics alike. These three unlikely heroes can only trust themselves, and each has to face tough choices and difficult decisions.

Spanning three continents and three different point of views, this was an interesting novel that played with the question: do you release a formula that can help millions of people, when it can also cause significant harm? These questions and other ethical dilemmas are asked and answered in the background of the story, while the fast-paced plot shows our scientists targeted from all sides by people out to steal their discovery.

The writing wasn’t 100% my cup of tea, but I can forgive that in light of the strong plot and interesting characters. Recommended to fans of technothrillers.
