Based on a true story, this fast-paced, heartfelt tale by the author ofHorizon’s popular End Days is a current NY Times Critics Pick.
Jillian, an ambitious geneticist, is racing against her own genetic clock to solve scientific mysteries that will save both a Native American tribe and her own 4-year-old daughter. She jumps at the chance to do ground-breaking research to find out why an ancient tribe in the Grand Canyon is being devastated by diabetes. But as Jillian uncovers the truth about the tribe’s origin, her research threatens to destroy their most sacred traditions. At the same time, she and her husband face off with a monster lurking in Jillian’s own DNA – and possibly her daughter’s. With today’s science moving at breakneck speed, how much knowledge is too much?
