My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Someone is intent on finishing what he started, and none of it good. Embryo 2: Crosshairs by J.A. Schneider is a medical thriller with a very current day twist involving in vitro fertilization and other medical miracles. OB resident David Levine and intern Jill Raney share more than a romantic relationship as they are pulled into a psychotic web of unstable colleagues and crazies. Indeed, Levine and Raney are fighting for their lives, as they both don detective hats to help local police and hospital staff find the man behind the mutilation of women, sickening messages of impending doom, and threats to one special child.

J.A Schneider immediately reels the reader in with a fantastic accounting of the original struggle that began the subsequent whirlwind of mad science, lies, and destruction of lives and careers. Skillfully blending inner thoughts with outer melee, Schneider gives the reader plenty to contemplate and surmise along the way–so many alternative routes to the answer to “WHODUNNIT?” Then the author brings us to a climactic ending which has several levels, so hold on . . . just when you thinks it’s over, you may still be on the ride. Schneider has a spectacular grasp of hospital protocol and the relationships between staff, but also shares knowledge of some of today’s most amazing breakthroughs in fertilization techniques and even the possibilities of those in the future. In Embryo 2: Crosshairs, we are reminded of the tenuous hold each of us have on life and that which sustains us.
