New York Timesabestselling author Robin Cook returns with another ripped-from-the-headlines medical thriller, where DNA science, biotechnology, and religion collide.

I tas been more than thirty years since New York City medical examiner Jack Stapletonas college graduation and almost as long since head been in touch with former classmates Shawn Doherty and Kevin Murray. Once a highly regarded ophthalmologist, Jackas career took a dramatic turn after a tragic accident that destroyed his family. But that, too, is very much in the past: Jack has remarriedato longtime colleague and fellow medical examiner Laurie Montgomeryaand is the father of a young child. But his renegade, activist personality canat rest, and after performing a postmortem on a young college student who had recently been treated by a chiropractor, Jack decides to explore alternative medicine. What makes some people step outside the medical establishment to seek care from practitioners of Eastern philosophies and even faith healers?

Jackas classmate Shawn Doherty is now a renowned archeologist and biblical scholar at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, whose taste for good wine and generally deteriorating health are taking a toll on his career. He has recently obtained permission for a final dig beneath Saint Peteras, and despite his long-standing grudge against the Catholic Church, begins his researchawhich eventually takes him to Jerusalem and Venice aonly to make a startling discovery with ecclesiastical and medical implications. And when Kevin Murray, now Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York, gets wind of Shawnas findings, heas desperate to keep them from the public. Kevin has strong political ambitions within the Church, but his association with Shawn threatens to undermine them. Kevin turns to his old friend Jack to help protect an explosive secretaone with the power to change lives forever.
