    Description
    In sixteenth-century Prague, Rabbi Jehudah Loew must use an ancient Kabbalist text to make a Golem - if he succeeds he will ensure the safety of his fellow Jews in that city.

    Four hundred years later, Victor Merker, a dutch biologist, hopes to win the Nobel prize by using his knowledge of DNA to construct a living organism from inert matter. Two men in two very different times working on the same project, but what penalty will they pay if they fail - and what will be the price should they succeed?

    A bold novel about the act of creation itself, 'The Procedure' seeks to answer a question that has dogged great thinkers and powerful men ever since we learned to give voice to our thoughts: what is the essence of life?
