Publisher's Summary

No longer is there a waiting list. Not when women can be created in a lab for the express purpose of supplying readily available organs that can be harvested within hours. 

An international research corporation does the unthinkable. Taking stem cell research to new levels, they push the boundaries. 

An innocent young life hangs in the balance. Because of the simple fact of one child too many, Tansy faces certain death. A baby thrust into her arms, then a kind guard whisks her away from all she has ever known. Lost and alone on the streets, Tansy finally finds sanctuary in an unlikely ally. Together the three work to stay one step ahead of the individuals who seek to cause them harm. 

Her only desire is to find hope, love, and acceptance. She is faced with desperation, terror, and death. Now she must turn the tables and work to bring down those who would seek to destroy her new found happiness.

Suspenseful

Very suspenseful story but a quick read, or listen in this case. The narrator told the story very well.

Good balance of dark and fun.

Tansy is a compelling character. Growing up in a man made hell and getting out before she became too old and unnecessary.

In a world where people are raised and sold for parts Mary cook manages to create a character you feel bad for and want to laugh with. Tansy and the people she meets along the way became a bit like family and I hate to leave them.

Genetics, cloning and body harvesting. Excellent book!

Narrator had a thick southern? accent and sometimes I had trouble catching what was said. But she can act very well so I’m still giving her a 5 star. Loved loved loved this book!
