Book Description: In order to save the president's life, a brilliant embryologist-- the president's nephew--made a "devil's bargain" with a secret group of federal agents. But Tim Sullivan's illegal genetic manipulations of human embryos place everyone he knows at risk. Before he can finish his work, a freakish accident takes his life, leaving only troubling questions behind.
Now his partner, Ben McKay, and Tim's widow, Marnie, must uncover the hidden truth about Tim's research before more lives are swept away. In the process, they're forced to face their feelings for each other and the dark secrets in their own pasts. This story of love, loss, and danger crosses international borders from Mexico to the former Soviet Union in order to answer one searing question: if Tim's research is completed, what form will the strange and dangerous harvest take?
Ambition, jealousy, and the ultimate meaning of love move this riveting story through the dark labyrinth that may lie buried under breakthroughs in genetic research and cloning.
My Thoughts: First of all, let me just say that I love Kregel Publications and their blog tours because I receive books that,otherwise, may not come across my line of reading and I'm introduced to new authors.
So, when I received Lethal Harvest, I was intrigued with the cover. When I think of a harvest I don't envision needles. So, right away I knew this wasn't a harvest of farm goods. No ... this is something much more sinister.
Tim Sullivan has been working with illegal genetic manipulations of human embryos. And then an accident takes place, leaving troubling questions in his wake.
This suspenseful story raises some great questions on genetic research as the plot centers around Ben McKay, Tim's partner and Marnie, Tim's widow.
As Ben and Marnie become more involved in finding out the truth, they also come face to face with decisions and lies they never imagined.
This is for the reader who loves suspense and a great story line!
A grandtastic read!
