This is one of those books that makes you squirm when you read it. It is entirely too believable and too plausible. Sam Dryden finds himself protecting a child he just met against odds that defy imagination.
The genetic aspect of the book is well researched and oh so frightening. Sam's past losses make him predisposed to protect a child. The poiqnant question may be, "who will protect Sam from her?"
The characterizations were quite believable.
The action was unremitting!
The plot was a thorough emersion in a Machiavellian pool.
Lee's depiction of corporate greed and governmental intrusion was sadly quite believable for anyone who reads a daily paper or news blog.
I highly recommend the book but budget enough time to do quickly because you will NOT want to put it down.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
