How far will some people go in the name of science? Fated Genes is a gripping story that raises serious spiritual and ethical questions.
Brad Forrest is a young, overworked pediatric surgeon who risks losing everything--including his wife and young son--to obtain the career opportunity of his dreams. Web Tyson, founder and head of a prestigious pediatric surgery practice, may be the next Surgeon General of the United States--unless the truth comes out about what is happening to infants in Room 525 of the Crestview Women's and Children's Health Center. And Lenore Kingsley, wealthy president of a huge pharmaceutical company, is using her power to engage in human DNA splicing research and to make Web Tyson the next Surgeon General--for her own dark purposes. When these three personalities collide over a strange chain of events, none of them will be the same--and none of them may survive.
Real-life surgeon Harry Kraus weaves social issues like health care, euthanasia, and genetic research into this medical thriller.
