Runaway Heart - A Novel

Stephen J. Cannell

The New York Times bestselling author combines medical sciences and action-packed suspense in this stunningly original thriller What if the military's foot soldiers were not our sons and daughters, but genetically engineered animals programmed to kill, with superhuman strength and speed and just enough intelligence to follow orders blindly? This is exactly the weapon that a top-secret government agency is developing in the desert. Attorney Herman Strockmire, a rumpled man with a very big but defective heart, is a champion of lost legal causes who becomes involved when his employee is literally torn limb from limb by one of the creatures. At great personal risk, Herman, his beautiful daughter and law partner, Susan, and ex-LAPD detective Jack Wirta, plunge headlong into harm's way, finding themselves in a nightmare beyond anyone's wildest imagination.
