Book description
Patrick Finch wants to clone a human being. He is admired by a few, hated by many for his single-mined mission – never mind the ethics or the biological horrors, never mind his family… Then Jordan, Patrick’s son, meets Maynard. He’s a young man with a terrible burden. It’s up to him to change the course of history – the fate of the human race depends on it. But Maynard knows that if he alters the future, he could sacrifice his place in it. This book is a stark warning about striving for perfection in a flawed world.
