synopsis (from Goodreads)

An explosion shatters the night sky...

Smoke and flames erupt over the city of Chicago. FBI Agent Nick Catlin watches helplessly as their only lead straps on a glider and leaps off a high rooftop, soaring toward Lake Michigan. They've lost him, again. The crimes scenes always fit the patter - five babies are among the casualties. Fourteen months later, though, in New York, no infant bodies are found. Nick's gut tells him the killer was somehow interrupted in his work and won't stop until he tracks down those children and finishes what he started.

Oklahoma rancher Leigh Barrus is barely making ends meet when his estranged niece, Janet, shows up at his ranch with five babies in tow. The terrifying tale she tells him about genetic experiments is only the beginning of the shocking truths...

A gripping sci-fi thriller for all ages


Amazing! I have to say, I wasn't so sure about this book when I first started. Genetic experimentation on babies? Well, I'm so glad I read it! This book is amazing. A superhuman race being genetically created, multiple murders being committed by a madman and God in the middle. Yes, it's a families faith in God that keeps them going despite many obstacles. Two young nurses working in a clinic overhear a conversation about the killing of the 5 newborns. They kidnap the newborns and run away. They raise them as their own at the ranch of Nurse Janet's Uncle Leigh. Leigh is a good man, a strong man, a faithful Christian man who believes God helps us through anything, all we have to do is ask for help. The characters in this book are colorful and full of life. I was able to feel the wonderment felt by Janet and Michelle as the children grew. A sign of excellent writing when the reader can 'feel' the emotions of the characters.

This book is incredible. Even if you are not a strong believer in the Christian aspect, it is worth reading. The genetics alone will intrigue you. The madman behind the experiments is someone psychologists would love to get their hands on! I look forward to books two and three in this trilogy. I want to see what happens with the children, how their abilities will affect them as they grow. How the madman will interfere with their lives. 
Excellent book Mr. Carter. You have managed to integrate science and religion.
