What could possibly go awry with the advent of CRISPR genetic engineering? This is the story of Nobel-winning genomicist Dr. Frieda Sengmeuller, who invents "age-decoding" - a genetic engineering method that finally stops human aging. When most humans are age-decoded in the year 2053, Authority leaders secretly use CRISPR to also suppress people's "propensity to dissent". They fake Frieda's suicide, containing her for two centuries as she is forced to research "reverse-aging". Frieda's daughter Ximena teams up with Authority insider Tavon Brooks to try to rescue her. This book depicts the moral, political, and spiritual challenges humans could face with the impending tsunami of genetic engineering.
