Seeds of Evil
By Margaret Bingley
There was something decidedly strange about the twins—Olivia and Orlando. Maybe it was their appearance that set them apart—their wide almost colorless eyes and silver-blond hair. Or maybe it was something more sinister—the way they seemed to communicate without speaking, remained unmoved by accidents to other people, were fascinated by the sight of blood.
Meg loved them of course, as any good mother would. But what of their father, a nameless, faceless donor to an artificial insemination clinic? Who was he and where is he now? Would Meg like, even love, him if they were to meet—or would she fear him?
When a compelling stranger comes into her life, Meg is forced to recognize a frightening, hidden part of her own nature. And to confront the question: from whom do the children inherit their sinister streak—their unknown father or Meg herself?
Margaret Bingley’s latest novel is as thought-provoking as it is spine-chilling, a timely reminder that the miracles of modern medicine may have their dark side.
