"A chillingly detailed picture of the power struggles that dominate the biogenetics industry."
"This medical potboiler . . . holds readers glued to their seats. . . . Kraus may be to the medical world what John Grisham is to the legal territory!"

"Kraus raises important questions and, wisely in a work of fiction, attempts no answers, preferring to let the story speak for itself."
—Ethics & MedicineEthics & Medicine
"Kraus . . . [is] quick on the uptake with tight, interwoven conflicts and thorough character development. Powerful illustrations of biblical truths also saturate every crevice of the story line."
—Christian RetailingChristian Retailing
