      WARNING: Side Effects Could Include Worldwide Upheaval

    In a world where medical and technological advances are proceeding at a breakneck speed, Monroe Diversified Corporation (MDC) is poised to unleash the biggest blockbuster drug of all time Ė one that would virtually eliminate most diseases with a single pill. And it has grand plans for plowing the expected windfall profits into a slew of worldwide initiatives to wipe out poverty and hunger. But the megacorporation isnít content to just push pills and do good. Flush with more cash than any company in history, MDC and its enigmatic CEO, Jim Monroe, have plans to radically redraw the international framework. But why? And for what purpose?

    Now, MDC exec Bert Hansen finds himself in the middle of this rising juggernaut even as heís unsure where it will eventually end. Then, deep inside top-secret laboratories, Hansen learns company scientists have done the unthinkable: successfully cloning a human being. Itís just the beginning of a wild tech thrill-ride through bleeding-edge genetics, medicine, engineering and computer programming thatís leading somewhere big Ė and possibly quite dangerous.
