In a world staggering beneath a deluge of war, famine, pollution, and disastrous climactic changes, it can be worth your life to tell the truth as you see it.

Richard Lee learned that the hard way. An idealistic biologist whose work in genetics has already led to cures for many lethal diseases, he thought nothing of venturing to say, in a TV interview, that humans and chimpanzees might be sibling species, more closely related than anyone else had suspected.

The nearly immediate collapse of his career--and murder of his fiancée--drove home that the world of civilized scientific debate was a thing of the past.

Now, as the planet staggers toward disaster, Richard is a recluse, living in seclusion with a former drug addict and a baby that isn't quite human.

Who will inherit the earth? Richard Lee knows, and he isn't telling.

John Gribbin is one of Britain's leading science writers and the author of many nonfiction works including The Jupiter Effect and In Search of Schroedinger's Cat. This is his first novel.
