Keith Fortin spent eleven years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Buried in a subterranean penitentiary on the archipelago of Svalbard, Norway, he had little hope of freedom. When Keith is accepted into an obscure inmate project called ‘The Descendant Program’, he is extracted from the bowels of the prison and brought to the surface. He is given an apartment, the promise of earning his freedom and…most baffling…he is given a child. Inside the apartment, terrible secrets begin to emerge. The children of the Descendant Program are not what they seem. Before long, Keith recognizes something larger happening outside the Descendant Program. His former career is suddenly considered crucial to the survival of the prison and he is forced into multiple schemes that he feels are aimed at his failure. No longer just an inmate, but a father, Keith will do anything to protect his child…...Anything.
