Short Description of Your Novel
In this third medical thriller by award winning author and practicing physician Darden North, human reproductive tissue becomes a fatal commodity. In FRESH FROZEN, a young policeman and his tormented wife fail miserably to produce a family, finding themselves outcasts in the renewed baby boom sweeping the United States. Suddenly there is one last hope for them: a catalogue of human embryo and egg donors peddled by a woman whose standards are easily dismissed for the right price. Pursuing their futile attempts to become parents has nearly cost the wife her life and pushed the couple to the brink of bankruptcy. This purportedly last chance for Wesley and Carrie Sarbeck to satisfy their place as parents in Middle America unknowingly tosses them in the midst of a grisly murder plot, the world of Hollywood celebrities, and a heist of freshly frozen human embryos. While Tinker Murtagh, an Internet voyeur and thief breaks through the firewalls of cyberspace to complete his surveillance, each of the three women has her own reason for entering the Center. However, as a result of subjecting herself to a concoction of hormones and surgical procedures, one of the three is gruesomely murdered in an intriguing spiral of human greed, mental anguish, and medical science. Throughout the FRESH FROZEN’s fast-paced suspense and character-rich dialogue, North reveals how medical ethics can easily be discarded as he allows even comical, endearing characters to meet tragedy.
