Eco-Breeder or Satan's Scientist? A nightclub fire claims 53 lives, including that of Dr. Hannah Strindberg, a scientist who runs the secretive Breedhaven project on a remote island near the US-Canada international border. The nightclub fire proves to be arson. US Fish and Wildlife Undercover Agent Venus Diamond suspects the target was Dr. Strindberg. Strindberg's breakthrough work in the harvesting, freezing, and cloning of embryos of endangered species has earned the admiration of her benefactors, and the ire of more than a few detractors. Would the arsonist strike again, perhaps next time setting fire to Dr. Strindberg's private habitat on Helix Island, the paradise where the murdered scientist rescued species that even now thrive and multiply? The controversial Breedhaven project has many detractors; its vision of saving endangered species seems foolhardy, even perhaps "tinkering with God's Plan," at least in the minds of Dr. Strindberg's enemies. Is an angry proponent of "Intelligent Design" behind the murder of Dr. Strindberg and the other nightclub arson victims? Dr. Strindberg's valuable lifesaving work may well continue...but only if Venus accepts an adventure that will alter her life—personal and professional—and not before the murderer strikes again.
