An extremely handsome gentleman is first seen sauntering into the ‘Future-Gen’ establishment (a sperm bank) in order to make a donation. Tall, dark, handsome and brilliant, Dr. Harmon Gettys is what you would call the perfect man. He is also the perfect catch for women who would like to birth offspring that are charming right from the start. Unfortunately, this perfect specimen is also using his donations in order to create someone just like him; a person who has the skill and talent to follow in Daddy’s footsteps and become a gruesome murderer.
A generation later readers meet West Palm Beach Fire Marshal Grey Gift, who has been called out yet again on an arson murder investigation. Horrific, burn-related murders are nothing new to Grey, but the escalating number of them has become more than a bit frightening.
With the help of the FBI crime lab, Grey is able to match some of the arson victims to a list of deceased offspring that came from Dr. Gettys donations. The authorities believe that the slew of murders could never be committed by only one perpetrator, especially when the grisly crimes begin spreading out of Florida and into other states.
Partnering up with FBI Agent Rose Cleary, she and Grey try to stop the horrible crimes from growing in number, but soon they find out that uncovering the truth may be the wrong way to go when they come to the attention of the real killer.
This is a story that is beyond detailed, and readers with a stomach need only apply. The book is so powerful (think Silence of the Lambs), that it doesn’t sugarcoat the graphic murders or the horrible people who commit them. Very fast-paced, the outcome is extremely well-written and readers with strong constitutions will be pleased!
Until Next Time, Everybody,
