"The ancestors are out there…you have to believe me."
From acclaimed author Scott Sigler-New York Times
bestselling creator of Infected and
Contagious-comes a tale of genetic experimentation's worst
nightmare come true.
Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a
heart, a liver, a kidney. Imagine a technology that could
provide those life-saving transplant organs for a nominal fee ...
and imagine what a company would do to get a monopoly on that
On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, PJ Colding leads a group
of geneticists who have discovered this holy grail of medicine. By
reverse-engineering the genomes of thousands of mammals, Colding''s
team has dialed back the evolutionary clock to re-create
humankind's common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A
computer-engineered living creature, an animal whose organs can be
implanted in any person, and with no chance of transplant
There''s just one problem: these ancestors are
not the docile herd animals that Colding''s team envisioned.
Instead, Colding's work has given birth to something big,
With these killer creatures on the prowl, Colding and the woman he
loves must fight to survive - even as government agents close
in to shut the project down, and the deep-pocketed company backing
this research proves to have its own cold-blooded agenda.
As the creators become the prey in the ultimate battle for
survival, Scott Sigler takes readers on the ultimate
thrill-ride-and offers a chilling cautionary account of what can
happen when hubris, greed, and madness drive scientific
experimentation past the brink of reason.
