This icily innovative thriller begins with every parent's worst nightmare, when Davis Moore's teenage daughter is brutally raped and murdered by an unknown assailant. It gets worse. For Davis Moore is a fertility doctor, dealing with cutting-edge genetic reproductive techniques. It's a controversial and dangerous occupation: Moore has already been the object of a fanatic's assassination attempt. But for a father driven half-mad by grief, his work presents one startling and dangerous opportunity--the chance to look into the face of his daughter's killer.

I quite liked his second book (The Thousand) and so went back to this one. I didn't like this one at all. I found it almost unreadable. Perhaps it isn't fair to say that the plot is implausble, as the plot in The Thousand isn't what you'd call plausible and I didn't complain about it. Maybe it is that the characters seem implausible, or maybe he just wasn't such a skilled writer at this point in his career.

I loved this book. It took me a while to finish it, but it was definitely worth it.
