A thought-provoking issued-led book examining the ethical and practical problems faced by those obsessed by the great advantages that can be gleaned from genetic engineering and the mad rush to get these products on to the market without proper controls in place to protect the public.  There are few answers and you are left unclear about what to think about anyone of the issues … and there are many! I found it quite frightening, compelling and demanding.

Similar this month: None but try Frederick Forsyth.
Comparison: Bill Napier, Michael Cordy.

Next Press Reviews

'A wonderful farrago, energetically stirring up a lot of scientific, medical, business and legal issues… marvellous.' Evening Standard

 

‘A satirical black-comedy thriller… Crichton writes likes Tom Wolfe on speed… completely brilliant… Crichton’s treatise on how breakthroughs in genetic science have been hijacked by science is anything but dull… top form.’ Daily Mail

 

‘One of the most reliable purveyors of brain-engaged fiction at work today… he is too good a writer not to nail us… diverting stuff.’ Daily Express

 

‘Crichton has certainly done his research… his alarm is hard to dispute… compelling… extremely funny.’ Sunday Times
