      A science-fiction thriller about an astronomer who discovers a source of cosmic rays which may be the origin of an ancient plague reviving once again.
    A young woman reaches Cambridge in search of a distant relative whom she believes has lived longer than any other human being.

    Three sleuths and three threads…all leading to the same man.

    "I long to believe in immortality," wrote John Keats over 150 years ago. There are those who knew while the poet lived — and those who know better now — that some things are better not wished for. The Reverend Doctor Janeway knows why. And his secret is one of the most dangerous ever uncovered.
