Publisher's Summary

Tinker Murtagh thinks his new job is simple, but he's never robbed a medical clinic before - and he's never dealt with someone like Dr. Henry Van Deman. In Fresh Frozen by Darden North, a childless young policeman and his desperate, infertile wife meet Lucille Wax and her sales catalogue of human embryo and egg donors. Suddenly their Mississippi community faces grisly murder, the world of Hollywood celebrity, and a physician with a hidden agenda.
The lives of Carrie and Wesley Sarbeck, international superstar Allyn Saxton, and southern socialite Cheryl Choice unwittingly collide at the Van Deman Center, a state-of-the-art clinic for the treatment of infertility, housed in a once decaying building complex in Canton, Mississippi. The facility is equipped not only with modern medical technology but also a network of secret security cameras hidden in unconventional places and controlled by cyber thief Tinker Murtagh.
While Dr. Knox Chamblee, Van Deman's younger medical partner, treats his patients per protocol, he unknowingly promotes the deception, preserving the dark secrets of the Van Deman Center of Reproductive Technology. The fast-paced suspense and rich dialogue in Fresh Frozen reveal how medical ethics can easily be discarded for the right price as human reproductive tissue becomes a fatal commodity.
Practicing OB-GYN physician Darden North is a national IPPY-awarded author in Southern Fiction. Narrated by Flora Plumb, Fresh Frozen is North's third novel. Plumb is a professional actress in film and television as well as a voice artist in audiobooks and video games. She has narrated over 20 audiobooks.

A medical thriller with many surprises

A medical thriller that illustrates not only the devastating psychological effects that infertility can have on individuals but also the potential that exists within the fertility business for unscrupulous and avaricious practices. This well written book contains many surprises, twists and turns, with multiple characters lives crossing and intertwining in unpredictable, and sometimes deadly, ways. You can not help but feel the sorrow and loneliness of some of the characters and your heart breaks for the devastation of their lives. The narration seemed to fit most of the characters well, but I did feel it fell a bit flat with some of the men. It is a fast paced, enjoyable book but I would have liked the author to do more of a round up at the end of the book, as I was left wondering what the outcome for some of the characters were.

Wow, unique let busy- intrigue, infertility story

What did you like best about Fresh Frozen? What did you like least?

Fresh Forozen explores the consquences of couples desperate to do anything to conceive a baby.PI Tinker Mudogh is tasked with stealing eggs for a person of the law, but along the way we meet all sorts of incendiary characters in a film-noir style. The story is really fast paced--reader feels as if they are in a maze with surprises in every corner.

If you’ve listened to books by Darden North before, how does this one compare?

Darden North writes energetic books.

Have you listened to any of Flora Plumb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have never listened to Flora Plum but I really enjoyed her performance. She delivered lines with the appropriate amount of softness yet mystery, and did a good job of dinstinguishing her characters.

Do you think Fresh Frozen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

This book needs a follow-up.

Any additional comments?

I received an audio book version of this book in exchange for an honest review.
