Spotlight: Perfect People by Peter James

Peter James' clever page-turner PERFECT PEOPLE focuses not on the past but risks for the future. A wealthy professional couple, Swede John and Briton Naomi, are grieving over the death of their only son from a hereditary disease that is the product of a rare interaction between their gene pools. Understandably, they want to try controversial new treatment that will ensure that any future children do not run the same risk. But their optimism is challenged when mysterious and unexpected occurrences begin haunting them. The eccentric doctor who treats them disappears, they find that Naomi is carrying twins and a fundamentalist group threatens to kill their children as "spawn of Satan."
