Publisher's Note: A new, updated and edited version was published on 29th September 2012.

For fans of Lee Child, Kathy Reich, Tess Gerritsen. The Story: the Orlando File is a fast paced thriller, based upon the latest state-of-the-art discoveries in genetics and stem-cell research. The result is a truly scientific adventure but with a thrilling twist.

When Kerrin Graham, a retired cop and now an investigative journalist with the Washington Post, receives a call in the middle of the night, his life is about to be turned upside down.

Six of the world's leading geneticists have all 'committed suicide' in the past seven days, his brother-in-law being the latest to die. Establishing that those who died were all employees of the Gen8tyx Company, a secretive research company based in Orlando, Kerrin sets out to discover the truth behind their deaths.

Discovering that those who died were killed to stop them unveiling the results of their revolutionary stem-cell research, a discovery that could usher in a new age of hope and health for all humanity, Kerrin vows to find who was responsible for their deaths and to uncover the powerful secret they were killed to protect.

On a trail that takes him around the world and back, Kerrin uncovers a sinister organization that will stop at nothing to protect the secret behind the mysterious 'Orlando Treatment'.

When those around him start to die, and his wife disappears, it becomes a race against time to find the missing 'Orlando File', the only hope of saving his crippled wife and proving to an unsuspecting world, the truth behind the sinister Chymera Corporation of America.

And yet, when Kerrin eventually understands just what the Orlando File contains, he is faced with a choice no man should ever have to make, and everyone who reads this book must ask the same question:
"What would I do, if I were him?"

...and anyone who reads this book could learn a simple little known medical fact that could extend their life by 20 years.

It is a good story but I don't like it when it is not finished. Another thing was funny to me, because of the British spelling on several words, seeing he was an American.

2.0 out of 5 stars Orlando Project Book One Review Nov. 2 2012
By Rialtime - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, selling a book without an ending so you can double dip and make your reader pay twice is disgusting.

As for the actual writing, when a Brittish author writes a book with characters that are supposed to be American, he should do his research and the characters should sound American, not British. Most Americans park their cars in places they call, "parking lots" not, "car parks". The vast majority of Americans call the systems that carry them up and down in buildings, "elevators" not, "lifts". Most Americans refer to their body weight in, "pounds and ounces" not, "kilograms". There are many more Brittish terms throughout the book. At first it was amusing, but it distracted from the story. I know Brittish authors can make their American characters sound American because, Andy MacDermitt, manages to do it nicely, and he only charges once for each story. Yes, he has sequels, but each book can stand alone with its own ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars Editing errors detract for medical mystery Sept. 21 2013
By Elizabeth Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise for this story is interested and as a medical provider I was hoping for a good read I couldn't put down. The suspense was good, however the glaring editing problems detracted from the story. The frequent European spellings, and reference to temperatures in LA and FL in Celsius did not ring true for American setting. Also, assuming it was set in present time, there was no security in the airports, characters came and went through airport gates without photo IDs.
Unfortunately, the editing errors and freq British slang distracted the reader incessantly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Bad July 24 2014
By Meadhbh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Apparently in all of the author's international travels he never picked up on the realization that American English and British English are not the same language, American culture is very different from British culture, and America is very different from Great Britain. I had to change my Kindle dictionary to UK English in order to understand all the British idioms, like "telling porkies." Irvine wrote a story about Americans in America using British English and idioms. He needs to abide by the adage that you should write about what you know, and he does not know Americans or America. The main character's sister and her husband lived in Miami, Florida, but the husband worked in Orlando, which is about 230 miles north of Miami one way, and is around a three hour drive one way. The main character apparently made the roundtrip drive three days in a row in order to interview the widows and sister of five suspicious suicides. Even worse, and completely unforgivable, is the author's placement of one of the houses he visited in Orlando on the beach. A 30-second Google search for a map of Florida would have shown him that Orlando is about 60 miles from the nearest beach on the Atlantic side to the east, and about 120 miles from the nearest beach on the Gulf side to the west. He also seems to believe that all Americans carry concealed handguns as a matter of course, since all of a sudden Kerrin is pulling a pistol out of a shoulder holster with no previous mention that he is armed, and after that scene it is never mentioned again. He also doesn't seem to know that Americans use the Fahrenheit temperature scale. So when he said it was a warm thirty-five degrees in California, to an American that would be three degrees above freezing. Basically, Ian C. P. Irvine is a lazy author, and after reading Part Two of The Orlando File, I don't intend to read any more of his books. The only reason I'm going to read the second half of the book is that I've already invested time into reading the first part and I want to see the story through if I can stand it.

1.0 out of 5 stars it is only a partial book May 15 2014

You have to buy part two to finish the story. The book needs a proof reader and an editor to correct all the annoying incomplete sentences and poor grammar.
