This book deals with up-to-date medical procedures and ethics subjective of science versus God. The characters are intelligent, cutting edge medical professionals. . . . The book very clearly presents the gospel through an interesting storyline. Some of the characters view science as their 'god,' which we can see today in our society, through the past teachings of Darwin and the like. In all,Lethal Harvest is an easy read. You will be engrossed in the plot while the characters deal with modern ethical, moral and Christian issues. Of course, they don't solve it all . . . hence the follow up book,Deadly Cure.

When a bomb destroys the lab and almost kills one of Sullivan's partners, Dr. Luc Morgan, remaining partner Dr. Ben McKay, an ordained minister, and Marnie Sullivan, Tim's widow, begin to piece together discrepancies involving Tim's determination to cure akenosis, a disease affecting his uncle, the President of the United States.

A lot of modern medical research really scares the heck out of me. If I learned anything from Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein), I learned that there are some aspects of mother nature that we humans were just not meant to tinker with. I think some cloning, some genome mapping, and some reproductive science definitely falls into that category. My tendancy, since I can't do anything to stop this unethical research, is to pretend it's not there. Well, Glahn and Cutrer look that stuff full in the face and show me that, while there is reason for concern, there's no reason to fear, not yet. Lethal Harvest deals with such a foreboding topic, yet it has left me with such hope. Because of this book, I believe that humankind can steer a straight path through the frightening and largely unexplored territory of modern medical research. I recommend this book to everyone.

This was a tremendous book. The book provided a perfect blend of science, intrigue, suspense, and love. The authors worked challenging ethical dilemas into a wonderful heartwarming story. I hope a sequel is in the works!!!
