One evening, while walking through crowded Leicester Square, he and his thirteen-year-old daughter, Sandra, lose each other. After a frantic search, he finds her. But during the course of the next several weeks, he comes to believe that it is not his daughter he has found, but someone or something else.
What if it were possible to clone a beloved deceased family member and an historical figure from 2000 years ago? A privately-funded underground medical research team in New York City works to clone a messiah with DNA extracted from the Shroud of Turin. Stacey Manning, a brilliant young biochemist, is invited to join the team. She accepts because she wants to clone her sister, recently killed in a tragic auto accident.
