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.
I enjoyed this book a lot! It has a really great premise in that people aren't ageing-so for the most part, they aren't dying-because yeah, there are some people who want to have that individualized, I feel, and yeah, seeing how it played out en mass was really great!
So first, I have to mock this cover! It's just silly, that she's diving over to the side, and shooting, and he's doing whatever the heck he's doing. It just is not the best cover. And his face! Looks really fake, which isn't good for him!
So the idea that people aren't dying, really awesome! And pretty similar to what was going on in Riser, but this, only one guy knows how the Change happened. And they have to find him if he's still alive, because the Change wasn't good for humanity, however much they like it!
Really enjoyed how it ended, it was fitting for the book, and enjoyable overall, and yeah, I just really enjoyed it! Good ending for most of the characters, and what they were working for in this book, so yeah, really good ending!
I enjoyed this book a lot, it was really entertaining!
