Every living thing shared the same ultimate destiny.
When her astonishing discovery makes headlines around the world, Dr. Yoonie Brandt becomes an instant celebrity. But her study is soon attacked and ferociously discredited.
The headlines vanish overnight. So, too, does the young geneticist.
Three years later, wealthy businessman Joe Kettleman is on the run from a wife who wants him dead, detectives who want him for a double homicide, and a tumor that wants him for an early grave. Joe takes refuge in a remote cabin in the Bisti Badlands of New Mexico, hoping to spend his final days in peace.
There, he comes across a town. A small city, really. Right in the middle of nowhere. And it’s not on any map.
That’s when Joe’s fate collides with that of Dr. Brandt, desperate to escape the strange city and making wild claims about a genetically-enhanced pandemic that will soon wipe out most of humanity.
Clearly, she’s delusional.
