What would happen to the precarious balance of power if scientists could extend life for centuries? If one power bloc had biological protection against radiation and the other did not? Whose thumb would press the button first? When Lyle Taney took leave from her teaching job to live high in the mountains, researching the ways of eagles, she was just planning to write her next book. Lasater was an unscrupulous, skilled operative who thought he could maneuver her as he pleased. He believed women were incapable of making ethical or moral decisions-and he was wrong. When the obscure government agent from an anonymous department tried to force Lyle to spy on her mysterious neighbors, she resisted. But the first step had been taken, involving her in a life-and-death struggle.

"Johanna Ward reads this genre-crossing novel with panache and aplomb. Lyle Taney is a disenchanted historian with a knack for photography and nature study. After being approached by a mysterious undercover agent, Hugh Lasater, Taney becomes involved with scientists who possess an immortality elixir. The elixir is shared in an unconventional manner. Ward's tense tone and excellent pacing build suspense as the story's scope broadens from the coast of Oregon to other countries. Taney and Lasater work with the scientists to resolve several important societal quandaries. Ward uses a wide vocal range and her clear luminous voice to portray the many characters. S.C.A.
