In a Washington, D.C. research lab, a brilliant scientist is attacked by his own test subjects. At Columbia University, a talented biochemist is lured out of her apartment and never seen again. In the Justice Department's new Bioethics Committee, agent Les Mahler sees a sinister pattern emerging. . .
Zoe Kincaid is a petite college student whose rare genetic makeup may hold the key to a powerful medical breakthrough. When she is kidnapped, the very thing mankind has wanted since the dawn of time threatens to unleash our final destruction.
I received a paperback copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
I was blown away by this book! I love the legal and medical mystery genre and this one is now at the top of my list! This book starts strong and doesn't stop until the very last page. I read this entire book in 3 days, and that was with me working and still taking care of my boys and house. I could not put this book down. The premise of the book is original and thought provoking. What if you could not age? Everyone wants the fountain of youth, but have you ever thought about the flip side of that coin? Never maturing, no puberty, no children, and always being thought of as a child. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. This story was a thrilling, page turning read with so many twists and turns that you are never quite sure what is coming next. There is a lot of cutting edge science mixed with the thrills and suspense, and the blend of the two is just right. I am a serious new fan of Kira Peikoff!

About the Author
Kira Peikoff is a writer based in New York City. She graduated with high honors from New York University in 2007 with a degree in journalism, after four years of various reporting internships: covering street crime for The Daily News, writing about Capitol Hill for The Orange County Register in Washington, D.C., reporting on business and technology for Newsday, and researching feature stories for New York magazine.
To fulfill her longtime dream of writing a novel, she then spent a year exclusively working on LIVING PROOF. The story was inspired by her experience reporting from the White House in the summer of 2006, as she watched President Bush announce the first veto of his presidency to deny federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. Peikoff’s passionate feelings about what many people view as a controversy of morality vs. science–one with potentially life-or-death stakes–led to the central conflict in LIVING PROOF.
After completing that book, Peikoff worked for several years in the editorial departments at two NYC publishing houses, which gave her an invaluable inside look at the publishing process and the rapidly changing industry.
NO TIME TO DIE, her second novel, will be published by Kensington on Sept. 2, 2014. These days, Peikoff is working on her third thriller, freelancing for a variety of major media outlets, and attending Columbia University's Master of Science program in Bioethics. She lives in New York City with her husband and dog.
