Synopsis: In the mid-21st century, the human race stopped aging. Those who know why aren't talking, and the few who are brave enough to ask questions tend to disappear. To an elite few, The Change means long life and health, but to the increasing masses, it means starvation, desperation, and violence.Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find the man responsible for it all and solicit his help to undo The Change - if he's still alive. To complicate matters, Grace's employer is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police learn of their connection, they give her a choice - help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew Stanton, or die. But if they discover Grace's true mission, they won't hesitate to kill her in order to protect their shot at immortality.

Review: The Immortality Virus gives us a pretty bleak look at the future if we all stopped aging. People living on top of one another like rats, food and money scarce, and people disappearing without a trace. Grace Harper has been hired to find the man behind the virus and see if he can reverse the change. Grace isn't going to have an easy time finding the architect of the virus and the truth...

The Immortality Virus is a killer dystopian scifi novel with very strange twists and turns. I enjoyed Grace's character and the way the world she lives in was brought to life. Very imaginative and creative. Definitely not a world I'd want to live in, yet in some ways it's a world that some of us already do live in. Very believable and intriguing!
