Nancy's Note 12-27-07

“Invasive Procedure” by Orson Scott Card, “The Bone Garden” by Tess Gerritsen, “Up Close and Dangerous” by Linda Howard.

If you are interested in reading something different in the new year you might want to pick up the newest Orson Scott Card. He is a science fiction writer who recently completed “Invasive Procedure”. The story revolves around the Healers who can cure the incurable diseases and ask for nothing in return. The genetic therapy techniques they are using are so targeted that what will cure one will bring a painful death to anyone else exposed. This group is not composed of doctors or scientists; they are members of a religious cult ruled by Prophet George Galen. Galen is a scientist and a pioneer in genetic therapy but he is also criminally insane. He has created a method to alter human DNA to “improve” people to make them stronger and able to heal more quickly.
    Tess Gerritsen is back with her latest suspense novel, “The Bone Garden”. It interweaves the nineteenth and twenty-first century. Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home, a skull is buried in the rocky soil. The medical examiner declares it a case of murder. Whoever this woman was and whatever befell her is lost to another time.
    A mysterious plane crash, a trek through the Idaho wilderness, and a deadly game of cat and mouse are involved in the latest book by Linda Howard. In “Up Close and Dangerous” Bailey Wingate’s scheming adult stepchildren are surprised when their father’s will leaves Bailey in control of their fortune. A year later, while flying from Seattle to Denver in a small plane, Bailey nearly dies herself when the engine sputters and then fails.
