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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Debut thriller about human cloning, with enough plotting to sustain a TV miniseries. Maybe that's the idea.

In Kevin Guilfoile's novel about cloning, science, for once, is not the villain.
