Baby Jesse is a product of science, conceived and gestated in the laboratory of a doctor who died and took the secret of Jesse’s creation and survival with him, leaving only incomplete and confusing notes about his work. All anyone knows is that the fetus developed in a mechanical womb and was born without physical defects. Unfortunately, when news of the birth is released to the press, it is met with a storm of controversy, with the strongest disapproval coming from a group of religious zealots who label the infant “Spawn of the Devil.” As one might expect, the hospital, and most particularly the doctors working in maternity, become potential targets of acts of violence. A young intern who has a special attachment to the miracle baby feels most threatened when the hospital has to treat a pregnant woman, a surrogate mother who is brutally attacked. She takes it upon herself to work with the police to help find out who the attacker is and how the assault relates to baby Jesse.

Embryo 3: Raney & Levine is the third book in this series by J.A. Schneider. It is a classic murder mystery with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. The hospital setting, characters, and premise are all fully developed, pulling you into the heart of a gripping story. Masterfully, the author takes you into the minds of the characters, exposing their inner fears, their religious interpretations and, in more than one case, their lunacy. I strongly recommend this book to the community of mystery lovers.
