In 2027, destroying an embryo is considered first-degree murder. Fertility clinics still exist, giving hope and new life to thousands of infertile families, but they have to pass rigorous inspections by the United States Department of Embryo Preservation. Fail an inspection, and you will be prosecuted.

Brilliant young doctor Arianna Drake seems to be thriving in the spotlight: her small clinic surpasses every government requirement, and its popularity has spiked—a sudden, rapid growth that leaves the DEP chief mystified. When he discovers Arianna’s radical past as a supporter of an infamous scientist, he sends undercover agent Trent Rowe to investigate her for possible illegal activity.

As Trent is pulled into Arianna’s enigmatic world, his own begins to unravel. The secret he finally uncovers will deeply move him—and jeopardize them both. With the clock ticking her life away, he finds himself questioning everything he knows to be true, and then must summon the courage to take the greatest risk of all. Nothing less than human life—and a major scientific breakthrough—hang in the balance.

A thought-provoking thriller by debut author Kira Peikoff, Living Proof is a celebration of love and life that cuts to the core of a major cultural debate of our time.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ingrid Morris | 2/17/2014

    " My neighborhood book club won 12 beautiful copies of this book. In the interest of gratitude and adventure we read it. We all found it a quick and easy read, but that was the best we could say about it. The characters were flat, the narrative void of color and the plot dictated by a leftist agenda. We did enjoy an interesting and respectful interview with the author and had a great bookclub discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Kelso | 2/9/2014

    " this book totally creeped me out. It was good. But all I could think of is that this is our future if someone like Rick Santorum would ever become president. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 2/8/2014

    " Was trying to decide if I wanted to try to finish this book. I realized that if it isn't good enough for me to recommend to someone else, I don't want to waste my time finishing it. Moving on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/8/2014

    " Great first novel! She really understands the mind of a religious fundamentalist. Some of the characterization is a little clumsy, but no worse than James Patterson. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 2/5/2014

    " Disappointing. After reading the blurb, I thought this was going to be a fast paced medical thriller. Instead it was an entire book devoted to the debate over abotion rights and embryonic stem cell research. Religion vs. science. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/17/2014

    " Interesting topics explored in this book -- embryonic stem cell research and future legislation that criminalizes it and various aspects of pregnancy. It was quite predictable and the characters were 2-dimensional. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/25/2013

    " Hard to sympathize with the protagonist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan Jaskowiak | 12/16/2013

    " This book had an intriguing plot. I enjoyed, however, I felt like something was missing. I was entertained enough that I will read more by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josiah | 12/7/2013

    " The religious arguments (meanderings?) were difficult to relate to. The story seemed, oddly enough, to sit backseat to the one dimensional setting created to support it. However, thoroughly seeped in controversy, the book does incite the reader's emotions and create an urgency to flip the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Fox | 6/15/2013

    " Wonderful debut novel. An intriguing thriller with a lot basis in reality - per the author, the science and methods discussed while not currently being used are not that far in the future. Highly recommended for fans of thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 8/8/2012

    " Solid structure, a touch bland at times. The pacing is good with a handful of throwaway scenes that should be cut. All in all, not too bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna Anderson | 8/4/2012

    " Well, this started off really well but quickly went downhill. I liked what the story made me think about but I couldn't stand the characters. I rated it 3 solely because the book can create good conversations. Otherwise it would be a 2. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 5/25/2012

    " I was disappointed. I found the characters kind of bland, and the book in general pretty predictable "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/17/2012

    " Thought this would be more of a fast paced mystery type book but sadly the main focus of the book was religion vs science which was very dissapointing. NOT A BOOK FOR CHRISTIAN READERS "
