Sinopsis: Living with death had never been his thing, but it was hers.
Hendrix Harrison is an old-school journalist for a popular conspiracy rag and must get into the digital world or face extinction. Researching a ridiculous apparition in rural Northumberland he encounters an ambitious young scientist
Sarah Wallace studies insects on cadavers for a prestigious institution with connections to a powerful pharmaceutical company. She hopes to find a better way of pinpointing time of death in crime victims but is struggling with inconsistent and impossible results.
They are drawn into a terrifying alliance that fights to connect her failing research with the disappearance of a rotten corpse and the bedridden guest of a confused old widow.
Death is only the start.
From the Inside Flap:
In 2001 scientists isolated the gene for regenerating damaged organs from the DNA of a South American flatworm. Within five years it had been spliced into the chromosomes of a rhesus monkey, transported through the cell walls by a retro-virus denuded of its own genetic material.
Attempting to regrow impaired or elderly tissues, a scientist will one day modify the DNA of human beings by injecting the gene-carrying virus. It is just a matter of time.
Before consenting to treatment, you may want to ask a simple question: could there be a situation in which you would want to die but were unable to do so?
