It's 1976. Despite fierce controversy over the propriety of in vitro fertilization, Dr. Colin Sanford, a brilliant, ambitious obstetrician in Emerald, Washington works secretly to put his name into medical history. But Sanford's endeavors lead to murder. Detective Bernie Baumgartner's investigation is hampered by pressure from influential people, and a double cat-and-mouse game develops between doctor and detective.

Larry Karp practiced perinatal medicine and medical genetics for 25 years. He served as Medical Director of the Reproductive Genetics Lab at Seattle's Swedish Medical Center, and delivered the first baby in the Pacific Northwest conceived through in vitro fertilization. Karp has written seven well-received mystery novels and three nonfiction books, and many magazine articles on a wide range of subjects. Larry's books reflect his interest in medical-ethical issues, musical antiques, and the history of ragtime music. He lives with his wife Myra in Seattle.
