In taut and supple prose, Frank Sapienza has masterfully created a cast of vivid characters and a fast-paced plot with one diabolical twist after another. It’s medical thriller with high stakes – a doctor desperate to save his son’s life, a mysterious company with global ambitions – that keeps you absorbed in one man’s personal struggles as it illuminates the social challenges we all face from DNA technology. What a literary debut!” –John Tierney, New York Times best-selling author of Willpower and The Power of Bad.
