Product Description

Product Description

David Myers is a young neurosurgeon willing to bend the rules to join the elite group of researchers who dominate the emerging field of gene therapy. But just when success is within reach, his cherished career is threatened. It becomes clear that someone else has been bending the rules-on him. As he searches frantically for an explanation, he discovers a terrible secret. He and his family have been unwitting subjects in a fifty year-old genetic experiment. And unless he can unravel the mystery, none of them-least of all Dr. David Myers-are safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEDICAL THRILLER 23 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be both fascinating and harrowing at the same time. My only quibble was why Vincent Heller didn't have a name change when he escaped justice from his infamous past as a cruel and inhuman doctor at Auschwitz and set up a successful career in America. However, I found it to be unputdownable and the author's knowledge of genetics was totally absorbing. I will certainly read more of his books and this one comes highly recommended. I've never written a review before but felt compelled to do so now!
