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.

Darden North writes energetic books.
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.
This book needs a follow-up.
I received an audio book version of this book in exchange for an honest review.
