Book is clean and tight; boards square. Remainder mark to top of text, else fine. "In the near future, Brazil is on the verge of becoming a legitimate space power. But their first manned launch goes horribly wrong. The boosters sputter, and fail. The world holds its breath, expecting the rocket to plummet to Earth. But it doesn't. It shoots into orbit - with no boosters, seemingly no propulsion at all. Impossible...but the world saw it happen. Now the world wants to know how they did it. If it is a well-planned hoax, it must be exposed. If it is new antigravitational technology, it must be shared. But if it is something more than that, something sinister, or otherworldly...then it must be conquered."

But as he journeys beneath the sea, his other world is falling apart. Across the country, scientists are being inexplicably murdered - including Hal's identical twin brother, also working to unlock the secret to immortality. Hal himself barely eludes a cold-blooded attack at sea, and when he returns home to Seattle, he finds himself walking into an eerie realm where voices speak to him from the dead...where a once-brilliant historian turned crackpot is leading him on a deadly game of hide-and-seek... Suddenly Hal is trapped inside an ever-twisting maze of shocking revelations. For he is not the first person to come close to ending aging forever - and those who came before him will stop at nothing to keep the secret to themselves."
