Synopsis:
"Deborah Cochrane and Joanna Meissner, graduate science students and close friends, spot a campus newspaper ad that promises to solve their financial problems: an exclusive, highly profitable fertility clinic on Boston's North Shore is looking for egg donors. Deborah and Joanna figure they can do a good deed - help infertile couples - and earn money. Although rumors of a fellow student donor's unexplained disappearance surface, the duo is not deterred.
The procedures seem to go smoothly. Deborah is particularly intrigued by the technology involved and by Dr. Spencer Windgate, the charismatic fertility expert responsible for the clinic's success. But second thoughts and curiosity prompt the two women to find out more about the fate of their donated eggs. Stymied by the clinic's veil of secrecy, Deborah and Joanna obtain employment there to continue their probe. Working under aliases, they soon discover the horrifying aims of Dr. Windgate's research, immediately putting their lives - and their sanity - irrevocably at risk."

Since I like Robin Cook, or at least I did at some point in my reading career, I was given this book as a holiday souvenir.
I liked this book a lot. It is a typical Cook: very realistic, the tension is tangible and the fact it may happen in real life / here too kept me reading at high speed.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

The "Rather Random Book Box" sent by Bloedengel is waiting to travel on. I liked this book a lot and I thought I'd put it in there hoping there will be another reader who enjoys books by Robin Cook. Or who got curious and is willing to try one....

Anyway: I wish the book a happy journey and its new reader(s) a lot of reading pleasure. Happy BookCrossing!!
