This is an excellent, thought provoking thriller which challenges many current scientific trends. The advance of genetic engineering, fertility treatments and experimental cloning has been accelerated in recent years, and Case does not seem comfortable with this progress. There are also questions raised about the Catholic church and it's reliance upon relics and 'miracles' as a main focus. Despite this, and the consistent dark tone of the narrative, the book reaches a very satisfactory and hopeful conclusion. I read this book by chance, but I am now a dedicated follower of his novels. Highly recommended!
