No true red iris exists, nor any true black rose, so the race is on. The first propagator to achieve a red iris or black rose will reap splendid profits. Wightman Trainer is trying to manipulate the gene code; Test Tube Trainer, they call him. Arlayne Wells is working on the challenge the old-fashioned way, by controlled pollination to achieve specific varieties. She lives in a comfortable and tidy little world, doing what she loves, until that Pacific Blacktail Deer comes through her windshield and complications pile up faster than she can deal with them. Is her rival a propagator on the cutting edge of tomorrow or a Dr. Frankenstein who could loose a monster?
