In a small bio-tech lab in New Hampshire, a group of scientists are nearing a breakthrough. They have uncovered the secret to longevity--in one family's genetic code. But they are missing one crucial factor: a living tissue sample from a newborn who possesses the coveted "infinity gene." With time and money running out, the researchers will stop at nothing to get their hands on the infant whose genetic makeup is worth billions.

A few miles away, a woman has just learned she is pregnant. Sally Benedict, editor of a small-town newspaper, is thrilled--until a series of grave robberies hits close to home and turns her world upside down. When Sally uncovers a link between the grave robberies, herself, and her unborn child, she knows that there is no one she can trust--not her family doctor, not her obstetrician, not anyone in the medical profession. And, in a hair-raising climax set in an isolated rural hospital, Sally proves just how far a mother will go to protect her child, as Harry Stein's spellbinding novel races toward its stunning conclusion.

After over a year of trying, Sally Benedict is finally pregnant. Thrilled with the news, she plans to continue working as the editor of her small-town newspaper and quietly await the birth of her child with her husband, Mark. Suddenly, the hottest story ever to hit the sleepy New Hampshire town breaks wide open. Someone is robbing the churchyard's oldest graves. The local police brush it off as teenage vandalism, but Sally believes it is something more. Especially when she stumbles upon a pattern linking the violated graves: they all belong to one family - her own.
Only a few miles away, researchers at a small biotech lab are nearing a breakthrough that could make the age-old dream of eternal youth a reality. They have uncovered the key to longevity - in one family's genetic makeup. But one crucial factor is missing: a living tissue sample from a newborn who possesses the coveted "infinity gene." With time and money running out, the researchers are becoming desperate, and as they await the child's birth, an isolated rural hospital provides the setting for a terrifying edge-of-the-seat climax.
