Embryo (Embryo #1) by J.A. Schneider
"Maria Moran's first inkling of trouble was the coppery taste in her mouth. It came suddenly, a rushing whoosh of something that made her gag, and when she reached to wipe her mouth, her hand came away smeared with blood."
So begins this thriller about a young intern, Jill Raney, determined to investigate tragedies and terror at a famous fertility and genetic engineering hospital. When two pregnant women die and a fetus is delivered with severe chromosomal abnormalities, Jill's superiors - including handsome, smitten-with-her resident David Levine - insist there's no common link.
But her suspicions deepen with the grotesque murder near the hospital of another pregnant woman - her belly drained of amniotic fluid. And when a woman miscarries in the hospital and then disappears, Jill frantically searches for her - following a terrifying path that seems to link all the victims: Is someone playing with life...and the structures of human life itself?
An unforgettable tale of suspense with a shocking denouement, Embryo takes you deep into the mind of malignant genius.
. . . . . . .
The heart-stopping ending of Embryo creates a new crisis in its sequel,Embryo 2: Crosshairs.
This was recommended to me by a friend who has read all the books so far (number 5 is out soon).
It starts off really good and the pace for the book is brilliant. The characters make you believe you are with them throughout the whole ordeal. The author has certainly done her work when it comes to the medical stuff to do with In vitro and fertility things.
I felt sorry for the main character who was doing all she could to find out why babies and their mothers was dying. It made you think you was going one way in the story and then all of a sudden you was taken a different way and was like "WOW". Highly recommend this book if you love your thrillers with a medical twist.
Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
