Embryo 3 Raney & Levine by J.A. SchneiderThird in the EMBRYO series and another doctors-&-cops adrenalin-packed thriller: A murderous religious zealot is after both IVF newborn baby Jesse – whom he calls “devil spawn” – *and* Doctors’ Jill & David’s hospital which he calls “the devil’s workshop which must be destroyed!” This time, the whole hospital is threatened… Jill and David join forces with the police in a terrifying race to track down a killer, and to prevent an unthinkable catastrophe.

Readers Favorite says, “…a classic murder mystery with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. The hospital setting, characters, and premise are all fully developed, pulling you into the heart of a gripping story. Masterfully, the author takes you into the minds of the characters, exposing their inner fears, their religious interpretations and, in more than one case, their lunacy. I strongly recommend this book to all mystery lovers.”

EMBRYO 3 is available from Amazon.


The Kindle Book Review: “…truly scary and chilling with an intense storyline and non-stop action. It goes at a breakneck pace with few lulls to let you catch your breath.”

Trista Borgwardt: “These books really have quite a few amazing dynamics. First is Jill and David’s relationship. We have been able to watch it grow and blossom into a deep and serious relationship. Jill is emotional, stubborn, reckless, intuitive, and brilliant – and the teamwork of these two doctors with the police is amazing.”


.A. (Joyce Anne) Schneider is a former staffer at Newsweek. Words and story ideas are always teeming in her head – “a colorful place!” she says. She’s a wife, mother, and loves thrillers and medical thrillers. Once a Liberal Arts major (French and Spanish Literature), she has become increasingly fascinated with medicine and forensic science. Decades of being married to a physician who loves explaining medical concepts and reliving his experiences means that there’ll be medical angles even in “regular” thrillers that she writes.
