Double Helixby Nancy Werlin
Synopses & Reviews
Eli has lucked into a job at Wyatt TransgenicsÂ—offered to him by Dr. Wyatt, the famed scientist. The salary is substantial, the work is interesting, and Dr. Wyatt seems to be paying special attention to Eli. I‛s almost too good to be true. Is there a catch?
El‛s father is vehemently against his taking the job, but wo‛t explain why. Eli knows that ther‛s some connection between Dr. Wyatt and his parentsÂ—something too painful for his father to discuss.

As he continues to work at the lab, and to spend time with Dr. Wyatt, he begins to uncover some disconcerting truths about himselfÂ—about his very makeup.
