Gene therapy that can stop skin from aging is a breakthrough technology, but before it can lead to eternal youth it leads to murder. In the second book in Chronicle's exciting new Bill Damen mystery series, the filmmaker-turned-detective's investigations again draw him into the dark side of high-stakes science and finance. The players include an executive escort service with a hidden agenda, a biotech company on the verge of either fortune or collapse, and venture capitalists with shady backers. Juggling old and new girlfriends and a car that still won't start, relying on his eye for the telling detail and instinct for danger, Bill must unravel both a double helix and a double identity to solve this murder.

Better than the first in the series. Felt repetitive in places and so became a little boring at times. A few editing errors but again, better than the first book. An OK mystery series.

The first book, knockout mouse, was good but for some language and other. Very interessing. Maybe this book will be just as good. Can anyone hep?

The publisher has a problem -- this book downloads as the Knockout Mouse, the first book about Bill Damen and Silicon Valley. Seems the numbering of the files is screwed up, so as many times as I downloaded it, it was the same Knockout Mouse file. B&N Customer Service was very nice and said they will alert the publisher who will fix the problem in 3 days to 3 weeks. So I guess I'll wait. I bought it at a special price and it has already gone up, so I won't go for the refund offered. Knockout Mouse was a decent read on an interesting topic, so I'll try this second book.
