In the year 2041 minimum brain function clones are grown to be harvested for organs or to receive surgically transplanted brains, allowing individuals to perpetuate themselves indefinitely in healthy bodies. Although legal, cloning has been driven underground by anti-cloning activists the cloners that remain use hidden maturation chambers in such places as basements or attics to grow clones. Anti-cloning groups enlist undercover operatives Martin Storm is one to ferret out the hiding places so that clones can be humanely terminated before they can be used. The sinister and secret anti-cloning society the Brethren of Life goes one step farther: the Brethren terminate cloners as well as their clones. Martins first mission is to determine whether Nobel laureate scientist Adrian Zeit and his wife are cloners.
