From Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award winner Joe Haldeman, the bestselling 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 twenty-first century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensures that every ten years or so, the ailing aging body can be restored to youthful vigour and health. There's a catch, of course: the cost. Every ten years or so you have to come up with Đ1,000,000 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 Đ1,000,000, he meets Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life, and makes two major discoveries. #1: Not all Stileman 'immortals' were born - or created - the same. #2: Someone is trying to kill them. All of them.
