I read this one just before my holiday, and I’m sorry about the delay in reviewing! I’m a massive fan of his Roy Grace series, but the only thing this book really has in common is the strong story-telling and well rounded characters. Have to say I thought this was science fiction at its very best. The story gets a bit bogged down in choosing the attributes of a designer child for John and Naomi, but it’s kind-of necessary to support the debate of the issues. But, from the point that “something’s wrong” this novel is pure adventure + excitement, twists and turns, and the most amazing ending. I’m sorry, I can’t tell you how it unfolds – it’d ruin it for you! But if you’re looking for a well-written + intelligent thriller, which debates well some significant issues, I’d recommend it really highly.
