Dominic has always been a disappointment to his ambitious father, but he has never understood why. Then he discovers that he had an older brother who died before he was born. Where his brother was a brilliant academic and scientist, Dominic prefers to 'waste' his time painting. His father cannot forgive him for it. Dominic decides to try to find out about his brother, but he discovers more than he bargained for. Their father had Dominic's dead brother cloned, and Dominic is the result. How can he live with this mind-blowing discovery? If the truth is ever made public, it could put people's lives in danger - including his own.

Review quote

A novel with frightening possibilities for its adolescent readers (who face a future where these issues must be solved), and one that should be required reading for the adults who currently make the decisions. * Booktrusted News * This excellent novel is several things at once . . . its pace, tension and ever-present danger are worthy of a latter-day John Buchan . . . (the) story makes a terrific book - exciting, heartening, intelligent, and all too topical. * Peter Hollindale * Allen-Gray writes in an easy, readable style, raises stimulating questions, and offers a plot that keeps you guessing throughout. * The Financial Times * Genuinely enthralling * The Guardian *
