a highly entertaining story about an experiment that will no doubt become medical fact
rather than fiction- we can only wonder about the consequences. William T Branch MD

Fast-paced thriller with echoes of the Frankenstein story and a well-drawn main character. The romance subplot is a bit shaky, but the main plot carries the story well.
