No one can die, except when it is time for them to be killed. In the far future, medical advances have evolved to the point that people can control their own lifespan, but the government has decided that 217 years is long enough. A group of 13 true immortals decides how to rule the world, but cannot seem to govern themselves. A society where everything is private, everything private is watched, and no one watches those watchers. With great regards to works by George Orwell, Margret Atwood, and Aldous Huxley, this dystopian novel shows the harm of medical over reach, government control, and the risk of a growing population.
