The search for a reliable supply of transplantable organs produces some questionable procedures with unexpected results in this so-so medical thriller. Cook has an intriguing idea here, but the book just isn't very well written.

What makes a Robin Cook book so scary is that it unleashes medical horrors that are quite possible. This time he takes on Genetic Manipulation.

Great thriller about genetic manipulation!

Not a great book. The characters seem thin and none to bright and with the line "omg a hippo" I could no longer take this book serious. The two main female characters may as well be barbie dolls and dont make any sense. They get shot at twice and shrug it off like its nothing but worry that there might be bugs on the ground. If your bored go ahead and read it but dont go out of your way to get this book.

In his most prophetic thriller yet, Robin Cook challenges the medical ethics of genetic manipulation and cloning.

In the jungles of equatorial Africa, a biotechnology giant has taken transplant surgery and animal research to a new level. Where one mistake could bridge the evolutionary gap between man and ape--and forever change the genetic map of our existence...

"Shocking and thought-provoking...Cook's best to date."
