Two brothers, both doctors, stand on opposite ends of the controversy. To Dr. Arthur Marshak, his work is a momentous gift to humanity. To Jessie Marshak, it is a curse. Between them stands a beautiful, remarkable woman both brothers will do anything to save. Somehow, before it is too late, Arthur and Jesse Marshak must bridge the gap that divides them on an issue that could mean life or death for millions.Given Ben Bova's extensive works of Science Fiction and non-fiction, there are perhaps few better qualified to adress the complex issues that surround today's scientific breakthroughs.
