The Silent Gene
Ryan Julian, author
Preliminary tests convinced billionaire biotech scientist Andrew Moody that he had found the key to immortality, so he broke with protocol and activated the same gene in a human subject. The sickness that followed was expected, but then came the other changes. The lifespan was extended to tens of thousands of years, but collateral effects have the victim wishing for death to come quickly. Moody’s best chance for a solution is Conway Kriegee, a hotshot young professor in the field of superlongevity, but getting help from Kriegee will first require destroying his life. Fortunately, Moody has the backing of vicious corporate elements willing to do anything necessary to secure the financial windfall true superlongevity will provide. Can Kriegee can solve the problem with superlongevity and decipher Moody’s deceit before he places himself and the world in grave danger?
