Technology and greed combine to bring the listener to the brink of a futuristic medical nightmare. Except it's not a dream. Kate Burton narrates with a staccato drumbeat that reflects the intrigue and terror thrust upon Deborah and Joanna, two women who decide to become egg donors. Close friends and fellow graduate students, they don't know they're participating in a secret human-hybrid cloning scheme. As Burton provides a skillful narration, with on-target age and gender changes, the listener is drawn into the complex plot. The story is exceptionally well done, and its ending merits its title, leaving the listener in shock as the final credits roll. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
