Overview

As Nate Kristopher sets out in 2059 to locate his fifteen semi-immortal Alpha Group colleagues, he discovers a psychopath among them who is murdering fellow members of this super secretive society. Struggling to elude the killer’s grasp, he reaches another unsettling truth: there is another psychopath in the Alpha Group--and this one’s agenda is even more malevolent and far-reaching.
But nothing will deter him from his vital mission of stopping the ‘End-Date’, which looms perilously close. Three decades earlier scientists asserted that unabated global warming would eventually cause earth's climate to suddenly flip into a frozen world. He is confident of his chances to convince humans to change their ways, but time is running out. And he must stay alive--and out of reach--of the cunning serial killer.
He is also dubious of his traveling companions. Along with his artificially intelligent robot, Dugan, he is tossed together by fate with Campbell Devereaux, the grand-daughter of the mysterious scientist who created the Alpha Group. They must learn to work together even though she is a staunch atheist, and he a dedicated believer in the fast-growing pacifist Church of Abraham.
An equally baffling presence is the transhuman soldier Es. She forces herself into his life as a protector and challenges his pacifism with her violent tactics.
Finally, there is an arrogant investigative reporter who has apparently breached the sixty year wall of secrecy about the Alpha Group. But Thatcher Grady also has knowledge about something else in Nate's past that he had hoped would lie buried forever.
Peek into the near future--a mere two generations from today--when humans will no longer be able to hide from the consequences of their actions. Humanity’s spiritual foundations will be shaken by new discoveries and beliefs. Hybrid forms of mind and intelligence--transhumans and artificial robotics--will challenge humans like never before.
Will humanity survive and grow into adulthood as a species? Time is running out for Nate--and the world. Perhaps humans have pulled the dragon’s tail once too often.
