Riassunto: Some see it as the greatest scientific breakthrough in the history of medical research. Others as a blasphemous attempt to play God. Researchers have pioneered an amazing genetic technique that can regenerate functioning organs inside the human body. The medical implications are staggering: Could humankind become immortal? In a worldwide media spotlight, an unprecedented "science court" has been convened in Washington, D.C. to hear the evidence and decide whether or not the experiments should be allowed to continue. On opposite sides of the courtroom stand two brothers: Dr. Arthur Marshak, brilliant director of Grenford Laboratory, who sees his work in organ regeneration as the crowning achievement of his career, a chance at the Nobel Prize, and a momentous gift to humanity, and Dr. Jesse Marshak, a physician, humanitarian, and idealist who sees the imperfect technique as unethical at best, elitist by implication, and dangerous at worse. And standing between them is Julia Marshak, a remarkable, beautiful woman who broke one brother's heart and married the other. As angry factions clash in the D.C. streets and science finds itself on trial in a media frenzy of greed, ambition, and lust, Arthur and Jessie must somehow bridge the gap that divides them . . .on an issue that could mean nothing less than life or death for millions.

From the Publisher: With Death Dream, Ben Bova established himself as a major mainstream writing talent. The Chicago Tribune called Death Dream "a quantum leap into the universe of thrillers." Now, in Brothers, Bova again delivers a knockout commercial read so realistic it could be torn from tomorrow's headlines.

Some see it as the greatest breakthrough in the history of medical research. Others as a blasphemous attempt to play God. At a corporate lab in Connecticut, scientists have pioneered an amazing genetic technique that can regenerate functioning organs inside the human body. The implications are earthshaking: could humankind become immortal? Now, in a worldwide media spotlight, an unprecedented science court has been convened in Washington, D.C.

On opposite sides of the courtroom stand two brothers, Arthur and Jessie Marshak. One is a researcher who views the development as a momentous gift to humankind. The other is a doctor who believes it is unethical and dangerous. Standing between them is Julia Marshak--a remarkable, beautiful woman who broke one brother's heart and married the other. As angry factions clash in the city streets and science finds itself on trial in a media frenzy of greed, ambition and lust, Arthur and Jessie must somehow bridge the gap that divides them--on an issue that could mean nothing less than life or death for millions.
