Tom Carter's invention can read every one of the 99,966 human genes, check all three thousand million letters of the human blueprint and identify every physical characteristic from colour of eyes to shape of nose; highlight every strength, from intelligence to athleticism; predict every disease from cystic fibrosis to cancer.
The Genescope has brought Tom Carter the Nobel Prize, the assassination of his wife, and the death sentence of his daughter. His invention saves lives all over the world, but it cannot save his child, only predict her death. With less than a year to save her, Tom Carter needs more than science – he needs a miracle. If he can decode the DNA of the greatest healer who ever lived, maybe Holly has a chance.
To the Brotherhood of the Second Coming, Tom Carter's invention is the work of the devil – but they need its technology for their own sacred purpose. And they have the key that will give Tom Carter the miracle he needs. They will trade. And then they will see vengeance visited upon the unrighteous...
Science and spirituality make a lethal mix in this riveting thriller that pits technology against faith in a search to win the power that once belonged only to God.
