Tim Sullivan is a brilliant scientist who specializes in embryology. When his car skids off of an icy D.C. road into the Potomac River, his widow, Marnie, and his business partner, Ben McKay are left behind to discover Tim’s secret research. More and more questions arise, and the pair must figure out what Tim was working on, and how it relates to Tim’s Uncle Cal, who just happens to be the President of the United States.
More lives are at stake as an unknown government agency works to keep Tim’s research a secret. Tim’s work may have gone further than even he had ever imagined, but the repercussions could be disastrous.
Overall, this Christian suspense novel was a pretty good read. This 2016 release is an update of the original 2000 publication. It has a plot that keeps you interested, and realistic characters that keep you caring. As much as I like science, I did find some of the discussion of research and procedures to be a little tedious, but they are important to the story, and the concepts are interesting. It’s also a great jumping board for thinking or discussion about God in science, and the ethical stance of a Christian in regards to genetic research and cloning.
