With two brilliant women scientists awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in chemistry for discovering a gene-editing tool, this is a timely entertaining mystery with updates from genetic research scientists in the afterword.

Skirting forty and appalled by the prospect of slip-sliding into middle-age, Aggie Mundeen blasts off to the local university to study the genetics of aging and provide youthful hints for readers of her column, "Stay Young with Aggie." She is doggedly determined to stay young. Despite conflicts with her professor, she learns about genetics and DNA. When she discovers a dead professor, the San Antonio detective urges her to avoid the investigation. But dangerously curious and programmed to prod, she races to solve the crime, flusters the academics, winds up prime suspect and is on target to become next campus corpse.
