|Plot Summary of The Clone Shopping Network|
Robert Cavanaugh, founder of the Clone Shopping Network, notices that business has started to sag. He tries to rejuvenate his enterprise by recruiting a talented microbiologist who develops a process to speed aging and cut production time of an adult clone to three years. Only a single glitch remains—the process won't work on clones produced from the DNA of dead people. Cavanaugh sends JB Balboa, his youthful computer security expert, to a resort in the Poconos in an attempt to enlist the aid of Abraham Lincoln Sweeney, the free-spirited clone of the sixteenth president and the only living source of the test cells that Cavanaugh needs.
On a different front, Cavanaugh clones the wife of Andrew Kline, the head of the Anti-Cloning Enforcement Agency (ACEA), as part of a devious plan to assassinate his nemesis. After the attempt fails, Kline begins a relentless pursuit of Cavanaugh, and finally finds the secret cloning factory. Kline falls prey to Cavanaugh's security force, but not before he initiates a sequence of events that leads to a decisive confrontation.
