John Andrews has been hiding his secret for almost 600 years.

But now twenty-first-century science has caught up with him.

Born in early Renaissance Tuscany, he is apprenticed to the great fresco painter, Piero della Francesca. He has had perfect health since the day he was born, but as the years pass, he realises that he is very different in another way: he isn't ageing.

At sixty, his youthful looks become a threat to his life when a fanatical and over-zealous Church wants him burnt at the stake as a servant of the Devil. Fleeing to Naples, he adopts a new identity and starts a new life, the first of many artistic personas.

Fast forward to 2009 when John’s DNA is profiled. Once his bizarre gene structure has been interpreted, it is not only geneticists who are interested. There are others desperate for the secret of John's longevity and they will stop at nothing to get it, even if that means sacrificing the very man with the DNA they yearn for.
