In Mutation, Robin Cook’s masterpiece of techno-medical suspense, Dr. Cook tells a story as chilling and real as today’s headlines. On the forefront of surrogate parenting and genetic research, it is the explosive tale of a brilliant doctor who sought to create the son of his dreams–and invented a living nightmare…
Because the idea of having a gifted child seems attractive to him, because he discovered the genes that allow the growth of nerve cells and that the legal uncertainty is noticeable in terms of genetic manipulation, Victor Franck, researcher in biotechnology, decides to give birth to a child with unlimited intelligence.
Creator of a half prodigy, half monster, can Frank accept that the scientific genius of his son turns away from the most essential moral laws? Or, as Abraham, will he have to sacrifice the flesh of his flesh? A book that holds us in suspense until the final, masterful answer. An undisputed specialist in medical thrillers, Robin Cook owes his scientific knowledge to his experience as a surgeon.
