“How far would you go to look into the face of your daughter’s killer?”
Davis Moore is a fertility doctor specializing in reproductive cloning. Working in a clinic based in Chicago, his is a closely regulated and highly controversial new practice. When his daughter, (Anna Kat), is savagely raped and murdered the investigation draws on for months, but is never solved. Blinded by grief, he finally retrieves her clothes from the police department and discovers a vial of the killer’s DNA wrapped up in her belongings . While tormented by this tragedy, he entertains a diabolical thought, not the cloning of his daughter, but the cloning of the man who killed her.

Justin Finn, at the age of five, appears to be just like any other child although he is far brighter than most His appearance of innocence, joy, and sweetness to his parents, and all who know him is merely a ruse. One day his face will be the exact match of the cold-blooded killer of whom he is a perfect genetic replica. What will become of the child who was brought into this world to solve a crime?

In this skillfully crafted psychological thriller, we find ourselves debating with our own consciences about matters of morals, social and metaphysical dilemmas in regards to the cloning of human beings. With God being the one who provides a soul, what can a clone do about the after life? Relentlessly gripping and profoundly unsettling , we embrace this major new suspense novelist.
