An Elon Musk-style billionaire persuades scientist Kate Larkin to join his secretive new project. Its ambitious aim is to re-engineer our collapsing climate by resurrecting long extinct species, including our closest human relatives, the Neanderthals. James Bradley’s Ghost Species is both a compulsive page-turner and book of big ideas: a deft examination of scientific, corporate and personal ethics in our endangered world and an intimate and affecting account of love, motherhood and what it means to be human.
