The Unwanted Author: Daniel L. Carter An explosion shatters the night sky.... Smoke and flames erupt over the city of Chicago. FBI Agent Nick Catlin watches helplessly as their only lead straps on a glider and leaps off a high rooftop, soaring toward Lake Michigan. They've lost him, again. The crime scenes always fit the same pattern-five babies are among the casualties. Fourteen months later, though, in New York, no infant bodies are found. Nick's gut tells him the killer was somehow interrupted in his work and that he won't stop until he tracks down those children and finishes what he started. Oklahoma rancher Leigh Barrus is barely making ends meet when his estranged niece, Janet, shows up at his ranch with five babies in tow. The terrifying tale she tells him about genetic experiments is only the beginning of the shocking truths.... A gripping sci-fi thriller for all ages Book One in The Unwanted Trilogy
Ok, I know I have reviewed this book before....but I found my self reading it again the other day....and I simply could NOT put it down! Typically, once I've read a book before, I have no problem putting it down in favor of sleep. I sure don't have any problem skipping over parts and simply skimming it. In stead of that, I found myself losing a whole night's sleep in favor of rereading the book. I just couldn't find a part of it I wanted to skip over in order to speed up my reading, and I couldn't put it down to go and sleep without finishing it! It's such a nice, refreshing change to find a book that is so compelling and interesting! I am very much looking forward to the next book in his series!!! I have managed to get a copy for my son's birthday (and the author was kind enough to sign it!).
I give this book a 5/5. It is one that is great to read....and read again! and then pass on to the next generation of readers. You want to go and find this book and add it to the TOP of your pile of books to read!
