about this item

¿Se pueden clonar los seres humanos?

Ken Follett nos sorprende con un espectacular thriller científico.

La joven científica Jeannie Ferrami está llevando a cabo una investigación sobre la formación de la personalidad y las diferencias de comportamiento entre gemelos. Sus investigaciones se centran en los patrones de criminalidad en hermanos separados al nacer para determinar si los genes influyen en el desarrollo de delincuentes potenciales. Sin embargo, cuando descubre dos gemelos absolutamente idénticos nacidos de madres distintas, alguien intentará frenar su investigación... al precio que sea.

¿Es posible que se hayan hecho experimentos secretos de clonación en seres humanos sin ser ellos conscientes? ¿Y de qué forma puede estar involucrado un candidato a la presidencia de Estados Unidos?

Reseña:
«¡Follett sí que sabe contar una historia!»
Atlanta Journal



ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Through her research on twins and the genetic components of aggression, scientist Jeannie Ferrami makes a startling discovery. Using a restricted FBI database, she finds two young men who appear to be identical twins: Steve, a law student, and Dennis: a convicted murderer. Yet they were born on different days, to different mothers, in hospitals hundreds of miles apart.
As Ferrami delves into their backgrounds, she unwittingly locks horns with some of the most powerful forces in America, including the university where she works, The New York Times, even the Pentagon.
What secret has Ferrami uncovered? Can she trust her boss and mentor, or must she put her life in the hands of Steve Logan, the twin she finds herself falling in love with--even though he's surrounded by intrigue and suspicion? But one thing is certain: There are those who will stop at nothing to keep their chilling conspiracy in the shadows. . . .
