In The Third Twin, Follett offers a provocative, well-paced and sensational biotech-thriller about the genetic manipulation of human embryos. Striving to prove that offspring genetically predisposed toward aggression can learn to sublimate their combative nature through childhood conditioning by socially responsible parents, a feisty and brilliant young university researcher, Jeannie Ferrami, develops software to identify identical twins who have been reared apart. When she stumbles across what seems to be an impossibility --identical twins born to different mothers at separate locations on different dates-- Jeannie resolves to discover the truth. As she continues to investigate she begins to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving disturbing genetic experiments and some of the most powerful men in America--men who will kill to keep their secrets concealed.
