Summary

Discoveries made within our lifetime will allow people to remain young forever. There is no more death. Our children will never die.

Welcome to a world inhabited by people who are perfectly healthy, beautiful and eternally young.

Every utopia has its shadowy backstreets. Someone has to make sure that overpopulation doesn’t bring the wonderful world of the future crashing down. Someone has to make people forget their animal instincts and live in a fitting way for immortals. Maybe that someone is me?
