The Clone Shopping Network Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews 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.
