Summary, etc.: "People will do absolutely 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." A former pre-med student at Yale, Jamie Angelo is part artist and part alchemist. His plastic surgery techniques are light-years beyond modern medicine. He can transform a haggard face into a masterpiece of ageless beauty. He is not God-but he is close. To ambitious models like Jaishree Manglani, Jamie is the ultimate fantasy: a master illusionist who can turn her dream of eternal youth into reality. That is, until the truth about Jami's "art" and "science" is revealed, and a nightmare ensues. Because if there's no such thing as perfect beauty, Manhattan's king of beauty might just be the gatekeeper of something other than human.
