In a small bio-tech lab in New Hampshire, a group of scientists are nearing a breakthrough. They have uncovered the secret to longevity--in one family's genetic code. But they are missing one crucial factor: a living tissue sample from a newborn who possesses the coveted "infinity gene." With time and money running out, the researchers will stop at nothing to get their hands on the infant whose genetic makeup is worth billions.
A few miles away, a woman has just learned she is pregnant. Sally Benedict, editor of a small-town newspaper, is thrilled--until a series of grave robberies hits close to home and turns her world upside down. When Sally uncovers a link between the grave robberies, herself, and her unborn child, she knows that there is no one she can trust--not her family doctor, not her obstetrician, not anyone in the medical profession. And, in a hair-raising climax set in an isolated rural hospital, Sally proves just how far a mother will go to protect her child, as Harry Stein's spellbinding novel races toward its stunning conclusion.
