GENESIS 2.0 by Christian Frei, Maxim Arbugaev 10

On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters search for tusks of extinct mammoths. One day, they discover a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Resurrecting the woolly mammoth is a first manifestation of the next great technological revolution – genetics. It may well turn our world upside down. “A double stranded helix of a real life thriller, chilling and unforgettable.” Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
