More even than space travel, the Stileman Process had altered twenty-first century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensured that every ten years or so, the ailing aging body could be restored to youthful vigour and health.
There was a catch of course. The cost. Every ten years or so you have to come up with £1,000,000 minimum or die.
For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it was that time again. It was while he was casting around for that vital next million that he came across Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life. And made two major discoveries.
Not all Stileman 'immortals' were born - or created - the same. And someone is trying to kill them. All of them.

One of the great works of science fiction
Quite simply one of the great works of science fiction. The ideas that make up the layers of this story are beautifully anchored in an accessible portrayal of the world of the story.
Character development is quick, effortless and well enacted.
This book rarely makes it to a list of the great works but I unreservedly recommend it and encourage a devotee of the science fiction genre to read this book.
