The scientist father had great intentions, but ultimately backfired. Perfection comes with a price.

One of Robin Cooks better books. A little to much science for my taste, but I am sure Mr. Cook did his research properly and the facts were all correct. The plot was exceptional, characters were believable for the most part. It makes one wonder if this will become a reality some day.
