Mutant

"With real science at its core, and written by a former ER doctor, Peter Clement's Mutant takes genetic engineering straight from the headlines and into our worst nightmares. A thrilling and compelling read."
-- Tess Gerritsen


"Steeped in the thriller traditions of John Saul, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King: pulse-quickening action, a subplot of good versus evil, smattering of blood here and there and a hero's race against certain disaster."
-- Doctor's Review


"Mutant is [Clement's} best book so farů The premise here, that we could be killed by what we eat, is scary enough to carry the book by itself."
-- The Globe and Mail


"MUTANT opens with a pattern that Clement has mastered well over the course of his last several novels, taking three seemingly unrelated occurrences (a child suddenly stricken with a horrible illness, an irascible emergency room physician experiencing a heart attack, and the disruption of a conference on genetically enhanced food), quickly but expertly merging them, and driving the components with due and deliberate speed toward a satisfying conclusion. Clement is either prescient or maybe just merely brilliantly good at connecting the dots. Maybe he's both. We'll keep watching his future novels to find out and for some hints on when to keep our heads down."
