Overview

After a woman is rushed to the ER in shock from massive blood loss, second-year medical resident Julien “Red” Richison becomes suspicious about the procedures being practiced at the nearby “VIP” abortion clinic.

Soon, with the help of Bethany Fabrazio, director of a pro-life women’s clinic, Red finds himself investigating what goes on behind closed doors at VIP. But what Bethany and Red don’t know is that some VIP doctors will stop at nothing to keep their secrets under wraps–even if it means taking Red’s life.

Addressing with sensitivity and conviction some of the most crucial moral, ethical, medical and spiritual issues of our time–including sanctity of life, bio-ethics, RU-486, ectopic pregnancy, in vitro fertilization, abortion, fetal tissue research, post-abortion emotional and spiritual recovery–False Positive take readers on a fast-paced thrill-ride ride and bring them face-to-face with the inseparable miracles of God’s forgiveness and grace.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Prolife fiction authors in the Christian market have long committed the sin of being overly didactic, rather than offering a well-crafted, balanced story. In their third novel, Cutrer and Glahn (Lethal Harvest; Deadly Cure) break this stereotype with a thoughtful, message-driven medical suspense novel that examines contemporary ethical dilemmas without resorting to proselytizing or oversimplification. "People change from the inside out. They change one heart at a time, so that's where we need to focus our energy," says Julien "Red" Richison to his girlfriend, Bethany Fabrizio, as she agonizes over the local abortion clinic. Their novel offers a diverse cross-section of medical-ethical crises, and characters are multifaceted, making decisions that may surprise some CBA readers. Teresa Murdock is militantly prolife, to the point of risking her own death to carry her pregnancy to term, even as another prolife mother facing cancer considers therapeutic abortion. The gentle, likable and agnostic Dr. Dalmuth Kedar finds a method to keep a 17-week-old preemie alive through technology, but uses aborted fetuses of the same age to develop his technique. Snappy dialogue, a comfortable rapport among the characters and several original plot twists keep the pages turning, while frequent moments of humor prevent things from getting too heavy-handed despite the serious nature of the issues. This is a mature, refreshing treatment of a difficult topic that should find wide readership in the CBA. (July) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Clearly Outstanding!

    FALSE POSITIVE is as intriguing as its title suggests! The emotion-packed pages grip and hold the reader with intensity from cover to cover. I am moved to give deeper thought on ethical responses to the topics and issues presented through this story of life events. The characters portrayed and situations developed are realistic and familiar. Interesting, timely, informative, enlightening, concerning, sensitive...these are some of the words that come to mind to describe Cutrer and Glahn's co-writings as they explore the rapidly changing and complex world of medical technology. I hope that many will read these pages and determine to become more aware and accurately educated of the scientific 'advances' in our world. Highly recommended!

    Better Than ER

    Excellent book! A page turner. This combination medical thriller/love story has more action, plot twists and medical dilemmas than any episode of E.R. (and it is far more enriching!). The characters were believable. The plot was intriguing and unpredictable. The message was thought-provoking. And the ending was satisfying. I highly recommend it!
