Biologist Christopher Bacon finds more than he bargained for a trip to the rain forests of New Guinea when he uncovers a plant that is rumored among natives to halt the aging process.

Blackwell North Amer
When biologist Christopher Bacon headed for the rainforests of Papua New Guinea in search of medicinal plants, he had no idea that he would bring home a flower rumored by a tribal shaman to prevent human aging. Chris conducts secret experiments on the flower's extract at his Boston pharmaceutical lab, only to discover that test animals not only stopped aging, they were rejuvenated. Driven by fountain-of-youth dreams, Chris begins tampering with the ultimate secret of nature, the consequences of which could be unimaginably horrific.

I thought the book had no pace and the plot was not believable enough to hold me interested until the end
