Publisher's Summary

In this provocative, gripping, and startling novel, best-selling author Ben Bova delivers a knockout listen with his trademark blend of cutting-edge science and unrelenting suspense.
Some see stem-cell research as mankind’s greatest scientific breakthrough; others, a blasphemous attempt to play God. Suddenly, the possibility of immortality exists.Two brothers, both doctors, stand on opposite sides of the controversy. To Arthur Marshak, his work is a momentous gift to humanity. To Jesse Marshak, it is a curse. And between them stands a beautiful, remarkable woman that both brothers will do anything to save.
Somehow, before it’s too late, Arthur and Jesse must bridge the gap that divides them… on an issue that could mean nothing less than life or death for millions.

Thought provoking

This book was a bit of a departure for me - I’m usually entrenched in the Stephen King/Space opera bracket.

The story is very interesting and thought provoking, though it does occasionally move quite slowly.

I am a bit fan of multi-narrated books though, and the performance was very engaging.
