From Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award winner Joe Haldeman, the best-selling author of The Forever War and Forever Peace, comes a thrilling sci-fi story that examines a world where time truly is money, and what happens when they both run out.
More even than space travel, the Stileman Process has altered 21st-century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensures that every 10 years or so, the ailing aging body can be restored to youthful vigour and health. There's a catch, of course: the cost. Every 10 years or so, you have to come up with £1,000,000 minimum to repeat the procedure or die.
For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it's that time again. While casting around desperately for his next essential £1,000,000, he meets Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life, and makes two major discoveries.
One: Not all Stileman "immortals" were born - or created - the same.
Two: Someone is trying to kill them. All of them.

This moved at such a fast pace that it was almost like a thriller...but was also very much a science fiction story. So, it was a techno-thriller I guess. Also very conspiracy-ish. Set in the near future, where immortality is a possibility, the author somehow took what is a common theme in science fiction and twisted it around and made it totally brand new! I wanted to listen to this because it seemed like it could be similar to Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow, and frankly, it's better!
He was very gritty and believable.
Forever War by Joe Haldeman brought me to this, but I think I actually liked this better. Basically, I liked this book even more than I thought I would!
