Following the death of their young son through a genetic disorder, John and Naomi are desperate to have another child – although they don’t want it to suffer the same fate.
After huge trepidation, John, a struggling scientist, and his wife Naomi, finally decide to call on the services of a highly controversial billionaire geneticist.
Operating from a ship in international waters to avoid all regulation, Dr Leo Dettore claims he can not only fix fatal abnormalities, but create human beings to order.
Dettore pushes John and Naomi into designing an ever more perfect specimen. But once impregnated, things quickly start to go awry.
This is very much a novel about the preciousness of life, the randomness of survival and, ultimately, humanity as we’ve always known it.
