Christine Nilsson and her husband Marcus desperately want a baby, but they are unable to conceive. Finally they decide to use a donor. 

After a few months, Christine is pregnant and the two are ecstatic about becoming parents.

Then, just a few months into the pregnancy, she sees a TV broadcast about a man who has just been apprehended for a series of murders. 

Shockingly, the man bears a very strong resemblance to her donor.

Could he also be a serial killer? 

Christine cannot get past the idea that her child’s biological father could possibly be a serial killer. 

She immediately begins to delve into who this man is.

She seeks out studies involving genetics and what the experts think in determining whether genes can predispose traits such as violence.

Christine’s marriage suffers due to her obsession with finding out all she can about the biological father of their child. But she’s come too far to stop now. 

She has to know.

Is her donor also a murderer?

I read this book in just two days. I quickly became immersed with this story and all its possibilities.
As soon as I’d learn a little bit of the puzzle, I was rushing ahead to find out more.
