I was surprised to find I really enjoyed this book, as I usually don't read this type. Plenty of action, although it does move a bit slow a few times. Sort of X-Files creepy. Although it's kind of sci-fi, it seems like something that could be happening now. It will make you think.

"Doctors Frankenstein and Jekyll have nothing on this bunch. THE EXPERIMENT is a thrilling life-extension science-gone-mad novel for smart people, with some intriguing ideas about what our future may hold" -- John Sandford

This book reminded me very much of the movie "The Island" When I started reading it, I thought that it must be the book the movie was based on, but it is not. A really good read with lots of food for thought. This could be happening right now.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

New York, at century's end; A mutilated body has been found, its face and fingerprints removed, a coin-sized circle carved into its upper thigh. On a remote island off the Southeast coast, a young man is running from a place he cannot survive, toward a world he cannot comprehend. And in the echoing canyons of Manhattan, another young man - a journalist - is moving closer to the truth about his own past, and to an encounter that will alter everything he has ever believed about himself..

"For thirty years a colony with its own laws, values, and complex living systems has been growing. Covertly supplied with the latest technology and DNA materials, its leaders carefully monitor their human trials and conceal the inhabitants from the outside world.

Now someone has escaped. When Jude finds him cowering in the shadows of his apartment hallway, he will understand why this ragged stranger who calls himself Skyler is so frightened.. "They share the same face.. "Now Jude and Skyler are running together - bound by a new, secret science - hunted by unknown pursuers as they search for the mystery of their birth. Aided by a doctor with her own dangerous secret, they flee across the country, drawing nearer to a conspiracy at the very heart of America's power structure...survivors of an experiment that has gone tragically, irreversibly wrong.
