Peter James had me at the title.
In a world where every other person is surgically enhanced or plucked and pruned until they no longer recognise their own reflection, I was intrigued.
This novel is the result of ten years of research and planning and although I am not used to the scientific descriptions used in the book, I wholeheartedly believed the concept and the portrayal of the situations that unfolded throughout.
Perfect People tells the story of John and Naomi who have tragically lost their first born to a rare genetic disorder passed on by both parents. Keen to avoid such a fate with any other children, they seek the help of geneticist Dr Leo Dettore who has a rather unique method of ensuring that their unborn child is 'perfect'.
