The Janus Legacy

The Janus Legacy - Lisa von Biela 4.5 *
Can’t remember ever reading a book so quickly and being immersed so totally in something that when I look back, I wouldn’t normally even consider reading. Testament to an extremely well written and superbly paced story that opens all sorts of questions about morality and integrity.

Jeremy has Crohn’s disease, it killed his mother and was behind the reason he was estranged from his father since her death. Tragedy strikes again when his father is killed in a plane crash and Jeremy inherits his father’s company SomaGene, discovering along the way that his father has left him a somewhat poisoned chalice of a gift that could save his life.

The Janus Legacy is a pretty radical medical thriller exploring concepts that are I guess not too far away in the future and the very pertinent question asked is, how far would you go to save yourself, would it be worth another life?
