Overview

Mutant by Peter Clement

Former ER doctor Peter Clement blends electrifying human drama with the suspense of top-notch medical thrillers. Now, in an all-too-plausible story that could have been torn from today's headlines, Clement has written his most gripping, utterly chilling novel to date.

On an isolated stretch of moonlit highway in Oahu, a woman cradles her dying son in her arms. Though a physician, she cannot staunch the flow of foamy blood from his body. In the days that follow, an autopsy draws a shocking conclusion: the boy, his lungs filled with blood, died of a disease previously found only in birds.

On the other side of the globe, a burned-out ER doctor repeats to himself over and over: Physician, heal thyself. For Dr. Richard Steele, a near fatal heart attack in the middle of his own hospital was the last warning he needed. Now Steele is being recruited into a movement to examine the hazards of genetically modified foods, a job that takes him to an explosive conference in Hawaii.

Spearheaded by a charismatic female doctor, the anti-bioengineering movement is gathering steam. While a powerful company is using genetic breakthroughs to create new, disease-resistant super crops, activists warn that new DNA strains will wreak havoc on the environment. But no one suspects that the controversy is masking a far more frightening human threat.

From the war-torn Middle East to an insulated laboratory in New York, from murder in a French cathedral to an act of terrifying violence at a remote Hawaii farm, a horrific plot is set in motion. With genetic researching opening new doors, one man has realized that altered strains of DNA cannot only change the make up of plant life--they can create the deadliest weapon of mass destruction ever unleashed upon the world.

"Oh, geez," Venus said to the turtle lying on the floor of the dojo,"Mikey, are you OK?" <p> "Yeah, I'm fine," Mikey stood up. <p> The other turtles came to where Venus stood. Splinter watched them all silently. <p> "I think that is enough training for today," Splinter decided,"Let us resume tomorrow." <p> "Hai, Sensei," the boys replied in unison. <p> LATER . . . Venus, Mikey, Leo, Raphael, and Donatello sat in front of the T.V. Michelangelo sat on the floor, closer to the old TV set. The other turtles sat on a bench behind him. Donatello was on his computer as always. <p> "Hey Donnie," Raphael asked suddenly,"Are April and Casey coming tonight?" <p> Donatello still looked at his conputer sceen as he answered,"Yeah. They're supposed to arrive in half an hour. Both of them. Sadly." <p> "Who's Casey?" Venus wondered aloud. <p> Leonardo turned to her, "Casey's one of April's friends. He's a friend of Raph's too." <p> Mikey turned around,"Will you guys SHUT UP?! This is the best part!!" <p> So everyone did. An ugly middle-aged man wearing a crown an a pair of (what appeared to be) pale blue underwear rode a brown field mouse across a field of snapping red flowers. <p> "FOR CROGNARD!!!!!" The man screamed, as he stabbed a dragon-shaped-thing in the gut. <p> "FOR CROGNARD!!" Mikey echoed. He turned around to face his brothers,"OK. I'm done." <p> Venus snuck a small glance at Donatello. He was sighing and pounding away on his laptop. There was something about the look on his face that made Venus wonder what was going on in his brain. He seemed distressed but was trying to hide it. The expression on his facewas difficult to describe.<p> It was a look of lustful remorse. <p> So close, and yet, so far. <p> Venus, too, had felt that was before. She sighed to herself and looked back to the television. <p> "Hey Venus?" Leonardo asked suddenly,"Can I talk to you for a second?" Venus nodded and he pulled her into the kitchen. <p> "So?" <p> Leonardo took in a breath. He was fidgeting. Venus found it cute. "Venus, last night when you sang that Taylor Swift song. . I. . . It was really beautiful. And I guess what I'm trying to say is: do you want to maybe sing a duet with me next karaoke night? It's next month and. . " He gave Venus the same look he had given her when thay had first met. <p> "I'd love to, Leo," Venus answered without hesitation. <p> AUTHOR'S NOTE: Hey guys. Next part is on the next res. <p> Lots of friendly punches, <p> NinjaNerd &hearts ;)
