Summary

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.

Decent book from Haldeman

It wasn't quite at Forever War level but if you're a Haldeman fan you'll probably like this too. Never heard of the narrator before but he did a good job.

Love Love Love!

Gotta love a good fast paced techno thriller scifi novel! I finished this one really quickly and kept listening after I got home (I generally just listen during my commute).
Joe Haldeman is always good IMO and I wasn't let down by this. I was drawn to it because of the cover --way better than the original artwork on this book-- and wasn't disappointed. I guess you CAN judge an (audio)book by it's cover.
