Book Review: Embryo by J. A. Schneider

Embryo by J. A. Schneider

Review by Iris Carden


A obstetrics ward is supposed to be a happy place. Unfortunately, for some people it's not so happy. Bad things do happen. Sometimes what should be the greatest joy in a family's life becomes its greatest nightmare.

When one young doctor finds that there seem to be unusual number of what should be remarkably rare things going wrong, she begins to investigate her own hospital, and put herself at risk both professionally and personally.

A bit of mystery, a bit suspense, a bit of danger, a bit of romance, a doctor who knows how to use a gun, some icky medical details, and a contemporary Dr Frankenstein (and you will be surprised when you find out who that is), all add up to make this a thoroughly entertaining, and very well-written book.

What will really creep you out is when you finish the book, turn out the light and try to sleep, and begin to wonder.... "how far are we from some lunatic really doing this?"
