This book is so complicated I can't really summarize it. It has many twists and turns; it's both legal and medical based; discusses prochoice and prolife viewpoints. I did not figure it out at all. It's long and complex but well worth the read.
Not my cup of tea. While I love most medical thrillers (Cook, Palmer et. al) and some political mysteries, I found this one to be very off-putting. Way too much lengthy detail that I found tedious. Would not read more by this author.
