A second-generation product of abnormal genetics, DANTE DEMILLE lives a life that leaves a trail of misery for those who care for him.
His mother, the product of pre-teen incest is abandoned as an infant on a church doorstep. MARY DEMILLE carries all the positive genes of a stigmatized conception. She is raised in an orphanage, and graduates to be a novitiate at a convent. At age eighteen, she is raped. When no one at the convent believes she has been violated, she runs away in the middle of a thunderstorm until she finds a safe haven with a couple who adopt her.
With love and attention, the good genes erupt in the form of her recording her experiences. She becomes a world-renowned author that leads to a career in films. When she gives birth to twins, her son, DANTE DeMILLE, is born with a void when it comes to "good" genes.
Dante and his twin sister, DEMI, grow up with a bond beyond all normality. From infancy on, any separation from his sister causes him to lose control and become tragically malevolent.
Growing up, his evil acts are immediately reflected in the accelerated aging and agony of Demi. Pain, acne, and hair loss, during preschool and teen years, agonizing degenerative arthritis, graying hair, and wrinkles, etc. as an adult are a plague she endures most of her life. On rare occasions when Dante acts with humanity, Demi’s aging process reverses.
Living a continent apart from his sister becomes a never-ending emotional cancer for him after he is sent to a Los Angeles military academy at age sixteen. He runs away to New York where a real estate developer, JUSTIN DENTON takes him in. Dante learns the business and ultimately marries his mentor’s daughter as a career move.
Letting a friend go to jail for a crime he committed creates no conscience pangs at all. Blackmail is another product of his twisted eugenics.
Strikingly handsome and weak whenever attractive females throw themselves at him, he spends decades as a chronic adulterer, even succumbing to his sister-in-law. When she threatens to expose their dalliances by telling him she’s pregnant with his child, he strangles her. At the instant he committed this horror an arthritis tsunami cripples his sister, three thousand miles away.
When his mother-in-law, MARISOL DENTON, seduces him, one tiny good gene finally appears questioning his actions in betraying a man who had created a great life for him.
Years later, when Dante and his wife adopt a blonde child who greatly resembles Demi, his behavior changes to the point his sister begins to live a normal life.
He becomes focused on ending their separation and hires a private investigator to find where Demi stays in New York for book signing visits. When he learns which hotel she is in, he arranges for her to meet him in his room on the same floor.
Their emotional reunion creates drama, and the long sought restoration of their unique bond electrifies them to complete the full circle of this narrative. Their union ends with their death in a lovers’ embrace, both aged - beyond recognition.
Interspersed throughout the whole novel is a running dialogue between Dante and the Devil, who creates a diorama of Dante's life for him to endlessly view–his eternity.
