THE STORY
Three weeks ago, the U.S. president was murdered by a four-year-old boy.

Today, seven men stare at each other in a locked conference room. Kidnapped and brought to this underground facility, the strangers are sitting in silence, thunderstruck. Despite minor physical differences, they all appear to be the same man, with the same name ... and the same childhood memories.

Unwitting participants in a secret human cloning experiment, these seven "John Michael Smiths" have been gathered by their creators for one reason -- to capture the mastermind behind the president's assassination.

Their target? The man they were cloned from; the original John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.

Soon our heroes -- John, Jack, Michael, Kilroy2.0 and the others -- realize the president's murder was merely a prologue to Alpha's plans. As the mystery deepens and the implications of Alpha's scheme are slowly revealed, the clones decide to stand against John Alpha. The outcome will unearth a conspiracy larger than they could have ever imagined.

Descent is the first novel in J.C. Hutchins' 7th Son thriller trilogy.

I had to write a review just because I only see reviews that like the book. In my opinion, this book sucks. 1) The book is really really slow. 2) After you've read the book description, you've pretty much read the whole book. 3) The characters are unlikeable. I listened ...

I was on the edge of my seat at the end of each episode. I am glad the books were complete by the time I found it here. Great job on a good story. I don't know for sure what a "MONDO MEGA CHECK" is but, it sounds pretty good.

great adventure


(4.5 stars)

51/2 stars because as much as I love the brilliance of this story and the writer, I do find it sometimes difficult to listen. But even though the reader sometimes has the emphasis on the wrong syllable, stumbles or pauses too long, reads a little slowly etc.... overall it’s so well done I’m hesitant to even bring this slight annoyance up. Well done and I cannot wait to finish the trilogy!! Thank you JC!

love this book

This book kept me up at night, I started listening to a chapter a night, but then I listened to two, then three etc. Next I listened to it during the day when I was in my studio! One of my favorite books ever. And also my first book in the sci-fi genre.

I just finished listening to the trilogy. It took me a matter of days, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! As the majority of the story lasts only a couple days, after the first book, I had to immediately begin the next. At the end ...

I find this a really good book to listen to. The idea is very interesting and the writing is enthralling. The details in the story are well researched and executed, although for me, when a book is good reading, details are secondary. Characters are very believable and dialogues are entertaining ...
