Arthur M. Doweyko about this book: A review by Piers Anthony
I read Algorithm by Arthur M Doweyko. This is a science fiction novel with a theme of DNA: where did the human form originate? Instead of evolution, it suggests that the human type was crafted by some alien Makers on a planet eight thousand light years distant. This is not pedantic; it's a thriller-type mystery, as a gold coin or talisman is discovered in a lump of coal, suggesting that it is over a hundred million years old. It has coded markers that actually describe human DNA, though there were no humans when it was made. How can this be explained? Dr. Adam Dove wants to know, but when he gets the artifact X-rayed things begin to happen, such as the laboratory getting blown up and a friend getting killed. Adam and his pretty associate Linda Garcia commence what turns out to be a dangerous investigation, as an unscrupulous enemy is determined to get that item. That's only the beginning, as they head into deep space in an effort to discover who made humans and why. There are a number of mysterious and often deadly associates, and the action continues to the end, with amazing revelations. Hardly anything is what it seems to be. Genre readers should enjoy it; I did.
