"People will do absolutley anything for youth. . .if they can risk horrible infections with face-lifts, and worse things from liposuction, then they can accept the risk of a little plastic." Ex Yale pre-med Jamie Angelo is part artist and part alchemist. His work is a modern miracle of computer imaging and scientific engineering. A technique light-years beyond medicine. A creation so revolutionary the world must never know. He can reimagine and reinvent you as he transforms your old, unlovley flesh into a masterpiece of ageless beauty. He is not God. But he is close. To ambitious downtown performance artist Jaishree Manglai--about to become his most radical experiment--Jamie is the ultimate fantasy. . .a dark erotic obsession that knows no bounds. . .a master illusionist who turns every woman's shattered hope for the few who can choose to wear beauty's monstrous-and deadly-face. . .
