Embryo (Embryo: A Raney & Levine Thriller, Book 1) by J.A. Schneider captivated me. I gave this book five stars, start to finish. It is a fascinating suspense-filled thriller. It is an excellent start to a series.
Jill Raney & David Levine came to life in this book. They are riveting characters & I eagerly look forward to the rest of the books.

"'How'd you know where I was?' He sat down beside her, & gazed out at the view. 'It's where I used to come,' he said. 'When things got bad.' She met his gaze.

Three or four years ago, maybe, but still...it was hard to think of him having ever been as vulnerable as she felt now."
