Book Description

During an artillery barrage at the Civil War battle of Antietam in 1862, a young colonel lost his leg. More than 155 years later, he loses the same leg in a traffic accident!

Diane Kowalski, a genetics expert, analyzes the amputee's DNA while he's hospitalized and discovers a mutation that could increase longevity, and make limb and organ regeneration possible. However, the injured man disappears and a saboteur destroys the DNA experiment.

Private investigator Jack O'Sullivan follows clues that lead to Thomas Winthrop, founder of a prestigious genetics research laboratory. Winthrop admits to having a natural mutation, but co-opts Jack and Diane with the promise that he will develop a gene therapy to extend his gift to humanity. However, the mutant's many descendants oppose their patriarch's plan, arguing that it would lead to overpopulation, economic chaos, famine and war.
