Little Brown £12.99
Breathing on Glass, By Jennifer Cryer
The obsessive world of the ground-breaking geneticist is memorably portrayed in an ambitious debut novel that examines what happens when science and human appetites collide.
In search of the perfect stem cell, colleagues Rhea and Lewis spend hours vacuum-packed together in an airless bio-tech lab. Waiting at the end of each day is Amber, Rhea's charismatic and attractive sister. Married to Lewis, Amber is about to embark on fertility treatment, but it's a step that will bring this already incestuous family group to the brink. This cautionary tale goes enjoyably more rogue at every turn.
