A medical mystery involving ethical issues in the fertility field, Lethal Harvest gives a glimpse of what could be a very chilling future. The book offers a fascinating look at the job of an embryologist and the ethical temptation for genetic manipulation.
Drs. Lucas Morgan, Ben McKay, and Tim Sullivan are partners in a fertility clinic. Just as the practice is in its zenith, Dr. Morgan gets served papers in a malpractice suit. The plaintiff alleges that a mistake was made during a procedure and the paternity of twin girls is questioned.
The case is complicated by the death of Dr. Tim Sullivan, the one in charge of all the preparations for the case in question. As Dr. Morgan fights to keep the practice going, disturbing information comes out about his former partner. The more he learns, the more he realizes that he didn't know his partner all that well. And Mrs. Sullivan is left with lots of questions about all those late nights "working." And to make matters even worse, the plaintiff is employing some less than legal ways of trying to find answers for himself.
Sullivan's widow teams up with Dr. McKay to try to make sense of what Sullivan may have been involved in while trying to handle her grief and raise a daughter on her own. You'll want to grab a copy of Lethal Harvest to find out what happens in this fast-paced medical thriller!
