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.
