Lethal Harvest ~ Review

Lethal Harvest
By William Cutrer
    and Sandra Glahn

Tim Sullivan's unexpected death has rocked the life of his family and his business partners. That his death has followed so quickly after his business has had a lawsuit brought against it is unfortunate. As Tim's widow Marnie works with his business partners Ben McKay and Lucas Morgan to unlock the secrets Tim took with him unsettling discoveries come to light.

Tim left behind evidence of highly sensitive and morally questionable research.  Research that could potentially create international shock waves.  But was Tim's research the reason someone has taken an unusual level of interest in those Tim left behind?  Or is there another that they have yet to discover.

As Marnie deals with her loss, she has to come to the realization that the life she had and the future she wanted are gone.  This new chapter in her life has Marnie, with the help of Ben, exploring the spiritual and eternal aspects of her existence.

Lethal Harvest is a suspense-filled journey that delves into the question of how far is too far?  Is there ever too high a price to pay in the name of research?  As those left behind struggle with understanding what Tim was working on, someone is lurking in the shadows trying to determine the answers to questions of their own.  And everyone involved with Tim personally and professionally may be at risk.

Lethal Harvest is a book that will open your eyes to the potential benefits and detriments that medical achievements can yield.  If you are looking for a medical suspense that will keep you turning the pages this book will do this.  But this more than a medical suspense as it delves into lives of those involved and their faith or lack thereof.

These are characters whom I enjoyed (for the most part) and would enjoy getting to know better.

I was provided a copy of this book by publisher in exchange for my honest review.


About the book:

In order to save the president's life, a brilliant embryologist-- the president's nephew--made a "devil's bargain" with a secret group of federal agents. But Tim Sullivan's illegal genetic manipulations of human embryos places everyone he knows at risk. Before he can finish his work, a freakish accident takes his life, leaving only troubling questions behind.

Now his partner, Ben McKay, and Tim's widow, Marnie, must uncover the hidden truth about Tim's research before more lives are swept away. In the process, they're forced to face their feelings for each other and the dark secrets in their own pasts. This story of love, loss, and danger crosses international borders from Mexico to the former Soviet Union in order to answer one searing question: if Tim's research is completed, what form will the strange and dangerous harvest take?

Ambition, jealousy, and the ultimate meaning of love move this riveting story through the dark labyrinth that may lie buried under breakthroughs in genetic research and cloning.
