Présentation de l'éditeur

“Maria Moran’s first inkling of trouble was the coppery taste in her mouth. It came suddenly, a rushing whoosh of something that made her gag, and when she reached to wipe her mouth, her hand came away smeared with blood.”

So begins this thriller about a young intern, Jill Raney, determined to investigate tragedies and terror at a famous fertility and genetic engineering hospital. When two pregnant women die and a fetus is delivered with severe chromosomal abnormalities, Jill’s superiors - including handsome, smitten-with-her resident David Levine – insist there’s no common link.

But her suspicions deepen with the grotesque murder near the hospital of another pregnant woman - her belly drained of amniotic fluid. And when a woman miscarries in the hospital and then disappears, Jill frantically searches for her - following a terrifying path that seems to link all the victims: Is someone playing with life...and the structures of human life itself?

An unforgettable tale of suspense with a shocking denouement, Embryo takes you deep into the mind of malignant genius.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

J.A. (Joyce Anne) Schneider is a former staffer at Newsweek. Words and story ideas are always teeming in her head - "a colorful place!" she says. She's a wife, mom, and loves thrillers. Once a Liberal Arts major (French and Spanish Literature), she has become increasingly fascinated with medicine and forensic science. Decades of being married to a physician who loves explaining medical concepts and reliving his experiences means that there'll be medical angles even in "regular" thrillers that she writes.

EMBRYO is her first ebook. Its two sequels are EMBRYO 2: CROSSHAIRS and EMBRYO 3: RANEY & LEVINE. She and her family live in Connecticut.

What created the idea for Embryo?

The idea came like a lightening bolt when hearing a conversation between J.A.'s husband (who did OB before switching to Cardiology), and an Ob/Gyn friend who was excited about IVF and its advances in curing diseases in utero. As an author who had already published fiction and non-fiction, J.A. thought about all human discoveries - from fire to atomic energy - and the fact that they can be either good or very bad if they fall into the wrong hands. It was a thought that wouldn't let go.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Still scratching my head. . . 9 mai 2013
Par Suzi Lindsay - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ok, this book was about IVF? Where was the IVF suite and the dozen people and sophisticated equipment needed to perform IVF? Did the doctor just walk off with an embryo or an egg? Not likely. I kept waiting for the big reveal on the identical genetic problems, but that got lost, as if it were a red herring. Still confused about what was happening at the exams done at the time patients should have been ovulating. was he doing inseminations with sperm that was genetically altered, and badly, thus all the birth defects and spontaneous abortions?
The plot was promising but badly mangled. Even the romance was a huh? They saw each other across a crowded room and ripped each others' clothes off the next time they met?
I think if you are going to write about a field you know very little about, it behooves you to have someone who does know the field to read your work carefully. I just couldn't get the mental image of a "syringe" being inserted into a vein (as opposed to a "needle") out of my mind. Or of a nurse giving Pentothal and then acting as scrub nurse/first assistant who doesn't even having enough sense to suction blood out of the field without being told. And Halothane does not come out of a green tank--that would be oxygen. There were just too many clinical errors for this book to make sense.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Light Reading With Cardboard Characters and Predictable Plot 1 mars 2014
Par John - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When Robin Cook wrote "Coma" decades ago it was a sensation because of its excitingly new medical setting, action, scientific information, and interesting characters. There have been many subsequent "medical" thrillers that have used Robin Cook's "formula." This novel is in that tradition. The stock characters are the young righteous doctor waging war against the older established power group doing secret unethical human experiments to further some secret scientific aim. Unfortunately, the predictable end and improbable actions all occurring in rapid succession, coupled with the usual clichés, romances, immediate brilliant solutions, make it a quick read at best.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wild Ride!! 1 août 2012
Par VStrawmier - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
When this book is described as a "wild ride," that is no understatement! If this were a movie, you would never take your eyes off the screen! The story line was intense, action-packed and completely engaging. There is no sense waiting for a page when you'd be willing to put the book down because it's just not going to show up. Every moment is exciting and you'll be amazed at the twists and turns J.A. Schneider has given her readers. This is one addition to your library that you will read over and over, just to make sure you didn't miss anything. I highly recommend it!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Contrived, exploitative, and utterly unbelievable 3 novembre 2012
Par Jane Bedinger - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
To. sum it up, two stereotypical beautiful young doctors behave in unbelievable ways in a totally unrealistic setting with a comic book ending!

Pretty doctors, dead mothers, dead babies...a marketer's drea

If you are into bodice rippers that barely nod to reality, then you'll probably enjoy this. If you're looking for a serious thriller that has exciting tastes of science and a peek into the real world of hospitals, you'll be very disappointed.

To enjoy this medical thriller, you'd not only have to be completely ignorant of modern healthcare, you have to believe that healthcare institutions are run along the lines of medieval castles, only more incompetently. In fact, it makes me angry. No, very few hospitals have in-patient mental wards and no, people aren't knocked out and taken then--with unsigned orders! No, a false husband would not be allowed to discharge a wife whose medical record says "divorced." A person ought to be able to write a medical thriller without betraying the entire profession.

I would have given it only one star, but as an airport-motel timekiller, it's not bad. I would have given it three stars if it didn't bear such false witness about healthcare. But FIVE stars?? I can't believe we're talking about the same book. Surely for five stars you need character development, some noticeable style, something a little off the beaten track.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Embryo by J.A. Schneider 30 juillet 2012
Par rose crochet - Publié sur

Excellent. I enjoyed this book immensely. One of my favorite reads this summer. Very well written, fast passed, interesting characters. The only problem with this book was the fact that it was so hard to put down. I found myself staying up reading/riveted well past bedtime. I highly recommend Embryo for anyone who is looking for a action filled love/medical/mystery. EMBRYO
