Skirting forty and terrified of descending into middle-age decrepitude, Aggie Mundeen blasts off to the university to study the genetics of aging. But she discovers a dead body, and Detective Sam reminds her to avoid the investigation. Dangerously curious and programmed to prod, she races to solve the crime, winds up the prime suspect and is on target to become next campus corpse. She learns genetic secrets of staying young—and critical lessons about love and staying alive. http://tinyurl.com/p5tt53h 1
