Overview


Someone is breeding superhumans, beings who possess extreme psychic abilities. Now they have implanted the ultimate seed in the perfect womb. They are a heartbeat away from successfully breeding a species of meta-humans, who will be raised in laboratories and conditioned to obey the orders of their owners, governments and large multi-national corporations. Then Shelby Parker, a former black ops agent for the government, is asked to locate a missing woman. Her quest takes her to The Center for Bio-Psychological Research. Masquerading as a computer programmer, she gets inside the Center’s inner workings. What she discovers is almost too horrible to comprehend. Dr. Mac McRae, working for The Center, administers a lie-detector test to the perspective employee for his very cautious employers. Although she passes, the handsome Australian suspects Shelby is not what she appears. But then, neither is he. Caught up in a nightmare of unspeakable malevolence, the unlikely duo is forced to team up to save a young woman and her very special child. And destroy a program that could change the face of nations. But first they must unmask the mole that has infiltrated Shelby’s agency and stalks their every move. They must stay alive and keep one step ahead of the pernicious forces who are intent on breeding evil.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The race to capture a couple of mad scientists intent on breeding an army of humans with super psychic abilities propels this fast-paced but flawed first novel from Wolfe. The story starts out promising-with a speedy launch into private investigator Shelby Parker's undercover operation, prefaced by some amusing banter between her and her former handler at the FSA (Federal Security Agency)-but it quickly devolves into a series of low-intensity action sequences. Shelby is charged with casing out The Center, where Dr. Ruth Carlson and Dr. Jonah Thomas conduct their evil experiments, and rescuing two gifted psychics being held there. But handsome Harrison "Mac" McRae, an FBI psychiatrist who's working undercover at The Center, beats Shelby to the punch. Together, Shelby and Mac spirit the psychics off to a safe house, which turns out to be not so safe. Shelby has no troubles thwarting the villains, however, and she even has spare time to steam up the sheets with Mac. Although readers will admire Shelby's espionage expertise, they will quickly tire of her mulish mantra, "I work alone." Indeed, it's hard to see why Mac finds Shelby so appealing and harder still to find a basis for their happily ever after (since they only connect on a physical level). While this story may not suit romance readers, its clean prose and suspenseful buildup bode well for Wolfe's writing future. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    action-packed espionage thriller

    After a decade of bouncing from one black op to another, Shelby Parker left the Federal Security Agency. Because she has no marketable private sector skills outside of sneaky surveillance, she opens up an investigative firm. Now six months since she left the government, Shelby is at the Denver FSA office wondering why handler Ethan Calder needs exclusively her to look into the disappearance of fifteen people connected to The Center for Bio-Psychological Research. Though more in line with the FBI mission, Ethan explains that this is not FSA sponsored, but he a concerned citizen worried about a close friend of his wife vanishing. Needing the money, Shelby accepts the case.<P> Shelby applies for work at the Center in order to get close to key researchers, Dr. Ruth Carson and Dr. Jonah Thomas. She quickly realizes she is not alone when she uncovers FBI agent psychiatrist Mac McRae working an inquiry from the inside. The two pool their efforts though it grates Shelby, who always works alone. As they work together under the covers and undercover, they must save a pregnant woman carrying a special genetically altered fetus who is the prototype of a future obedient soldier who will be sold to the highest bidder. That is if they live long enough to do so for even safe houses are unsafe.<P> Fans of espionage thrillers with no respite from the action once Shelby accepts the case will want to read this fast-paced tale. The story line moves so fast, the audience never is able to catch their breathe even when the heroic duo takes a sexual time out. Though the personal relationship between Mac and Shelby seems off-kilter, genre readers will enjoy this non-stop mega action thriller.<P> Harriet Klausner
