“Science fiction as it should be written.” Isaac Asimov
He will stop at nothing to save her…
Luke Abramson’s granddaughter is dying of cancer. A living nightmare.
The prognosis is dire.
Despite the odds, Abramson, a renowned cellular biologist, is certain that he can cure his granddaughter, Angela, by destroying the tumours that are taking her life. But a number of problems stand in his way.
Going against the desires of Angela’s parents, Abramson’s smuggles Angela out of the hospital.
Now begins a race against time – and the authorities – to treat Angela’s cancer. Whether or not he will succeed, it soon becomes clear that the very treatment he is giving his granddaughter could be the key to a longer, better life for the whole of humanity.
But the authorities are not the only ones interested in Abramson’s experiments.
Soon Abramson not only has to protect his granddaughter, but his science too.
But who can he trust?
