EMBRYO EMBRYO 4.4 stars / 481 reviews “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. 2012-05-07 235 2464

Soon after, one of the friends joins the army and is captured and tortured by the Iraqis during the closing phase of the Gulf War. Years later, these two events lead to a terrorist hostage situation involving his wife and children, and their grandmother.As terrorists seek to draw attention from the ongoing events in the Ukraine and the Arab Spring, this hostage drama moves from the Canadian Laurentian Mountains to Israel’s Negev Desert, from the seedy backstreets of Brussels to a gun-running operation in London, from a home-grown jihadist spy network in New York City back to the Canadian mountains.
