Summary
A new terror is gripping the population - rapid premature aging. Falling life expectancies have forced Governments all over the globe to breaking point. They have turned to medical research as the only hope for the future. Medical research labs are now under the control of intelligence agencies given the enormous potential of breakthrough therapies. The new cold war is not an arms race; its a medical research race. When a genetic research lab hidden in the Himalaya Mountains is unexpectedly destroyed and its leader, Professor Donald Sable, the worlds leading anti-aging researcher is found murdered, rumours of a revolutionary new anti-aging discovery spark a desperate search. The U.S. Anti-Cancer Intelligence Department, led by Jack Kenrick, dispatch their best agent Daniella Scolaro to Pakistan to follow Sables last movements. But when Scolaro and her team unexpectedly go missing, her lover, Professor Taylor Wells, Americas brightest cancer surgeon, backed by marine special forces Captain Talbot lead a mission to find her. After a daring rescue, Wells finds amongst the people of an isolated village in the Hunza Valley a long history of extreme old age. His curiosity leads him to take up the hunt for the secret of their longevity. Suddenly, he finds himself inextricably caught up in an ancient Hunzakut ritual that promises to unlock the secret of aging. In the race to unlock the secret, he must first survive a deadly betrayal
