THE COMING STORM, a cli-fi novel set in 2023 -- by Mark Alpert

This novel is set in NYC in 2023 in the middle of a  
storm that's reminiscent of Hurricane Sandy; all the climate models  
say that storms like that one will become much more common over the  
next decade. 

There are also federalized police patrolling the flooded  
zones, and the government has begun to experiment with CRISPR gene  
editing for various purposes. (The first clinical trials of CRISPR  
treatments are already underway in 2019.)

"This novel isn't just ripped from the headlines, it's an alarm bell ringing from the near-future, a prescient warning of where we're headed next. Read this now--before it's literally too late." - author James Rollins
America is on the brink of collapse, devastated by a brutal government trying to silence its citizens, in The Coming Storm, the next action-packed thriller from Mark Alpert.

New York City, 2023: Rising seas and superstorms have ravaged the land. Food and electricity are scarce. A dangerous Washington regime has terrorized the city, forcing the most vulnerable and defenseless people into the flood-ravaged neighborhoods. The new laws are enforced by an army of genetically enhanced soldiers, designed to be the fiercest and cruelest of killers. Genetic scientist Dr. Jenna Khan knows too much about how these super-soldiers were engineered: by altering the DNA sequence in ways that could change the fabric of humanity.

Escaping arrest and on the run, Jenna joins forces with a genetically enhanced soldier gone rogue and a Brooklyn gang kingpin to resist the government’s plan to manipulate the DNA of all Americans. The race is on to stop the evil experiment before it spreads the genetic changes…and transforms the human species forever.
