Lethal Harvest: A Novel by William Cutrer and Sandra Glahn Book Review

Lethal Harvest is a book about Tim Sullivan who worked at The Center for Fertility Enhancement and he is desperately trying to find a cure for his uncle, who was also the president of the United States. His whole male relatives had a condition called akenosis, which causes the whole motor system to shut down over time. He was dead set in researching embryos and genetic manipulating them in order to find a cure. He turns up missing and people are trying to figure out what happened. One of Tim lab partners accidently used the wrong eggs and instead creates twins of their mother and this cause chaos to erupt. His wife, Marnie and one of his lab partners, Ben McKay team up to try and find out the truth of his disappearance. 

I would recommend this awesome book to anyone who enjoys reading a medical thriller. I loved how the authors described the medical research behind reproduction and cells. You could tell they knew a lot about how to explain where readers could understand what does into cells research. I liked the character of Marnie and how the authors shared her struggles with believing in God and how she begin to trust Him. I liked how the authors shared how Tim and Marnie marriage struggled when Marnie became pregnant and how he wanted an abortion if it was a boy and how she wasn’t going to. It turned out to be a girl. But this was the first big thing in their marriage that she struggled with forgiving him for his harsh words. I think this was what helped also to try and find a cure for this disease. He didn’t want anyone else to go through the pain of losing the men in their family. I loved how the book contained a great deal of mystery and I also liked how the book showed the lawsuit and the court room battle over the embryos. I loved how exciting it was to read! I feel like I was taught a lot about fertility centers and what all goes on during their procedures.
