Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, or a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life saving organs for a nominal fee.....and imagine what a company would do to monopolize that technology. On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, P.J. Colding leads a team of scientists who have discovered this holy grail of medicine. By reverse engineering the genomes of thousands of mammals, Colding's team has dialed back the evolutionary clock to re-create their common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A computer engineered living creature --- an animal whose organs can be permanently transplanted into anyone with zero chance of rejection. There's just one problem: these ancestors turn out not to be the docile herd animals Colding's team envisioned. Instead, Colding's work has given birth to something big, something evil. ......AND IT'S VERY, VERY HUNGRY!

Magnus Paglione had a nice little chat with Clayton Detweiler to find out where Sara Purinam and Tim Feely were hiding. Now, Magnus is on his way to meet the two survivors. Meanwhile, Gunther Jones awaits in a tall tower in the middle of Black Manitou Island - cold, lonely and wishing he could return to his writing. Colding and Rhumkorrf have been hiding at the Harvey's farm, but they know that place won't stay safe for long.
