Greater love hath no man.. That, at least, was what genetic researcher Jake Chalmers told himself, and his wife Alex, when he did everything in his power to ensure their daughter Sophie would be exceptional in every way, a prodigy. Especially after what had gone wrong with their first child, Danny. Jake was determined that Sophie would prove to be the genius he had hoped for. But what happens when feelings seem to take second place to intellect in a child's life? What happens when that child's closest emotional bond is suddenly and finally ruptured? And what happens when the basis of the so-far-successful experiment begins to go tragically, frighteningly wrong? As Sophie grows to realise the full, sometimes unforeseen potential of her prodigious talent, Prodigy raises itself to levels of almost unbearable tension, in a story of a love that goes too far, then goes terribly wrong.
