Motherless – A Tiber River Review

Brian J. Gail's novel Motherless, sequel to Fatherless, is a compelling treatment of business-driven advances in medical science. Set in the present day, this novel is scary–because all of this could happen. I am left wondering exactly how much of this is happening; it's clear that some of it definitely is.
