When a scientist claims he s unlocked the secrets mysteries of human existence just before catastrophe strikes, his estranged best friend finds himself in a race against time to uncover the truth in this fast-paced thriller of science and faith, power and murder, loss and redemption.
Dan Lawson, a former government cyber-intelligence analyst, is skeptical when he s contacted by Stephen Bishop, a renowned geneticist and childhood friend. Stephen says that he s discovered the secrets of the universe including human origin and destiny while researching encoded DNA and its implications and needs Dan s help to protect his findings. Dan is skeptical: has the recent illness of Stephen s only child, Ava, caused his old friend to fall back on religion for answers to questions best left to science? Spurred by his desire for proof that life has meaning, Dan puts aside his doubts and agrees to assist Stephen.
When an experiment goes terribly awry, Dan realizes he must find the truth of Stephen and his work. With the help of Trish Alighieri, a pediatric oncologist trying to save Ava s life, Dan desperately searches for answers including whether the human soul can survive science s conquest of nature."
