Summary
In a near-future New York, medical technology has progressed far enough that immortality is now within reach - but only for the deserving. These people are the lifers, those who display the best chance of living forever. Genetically perfect, one hundred-year-old Lea is the poster girl for the deserving lifers, until an unexpected encounter leads her to a brush with death and sparks suspicions. If Lea could be so careless, is she worthy of immortality? In this world, risking your life is serious business. Suicide Club wasn't always an activist group. It began as a set of disillusioned lifers, gathering to indulge in forbidden activities: performances of live music, artery-clogging meals, irresponsible orgies. But now they have been branded terrorists and are hunted by the state. And Lea has decided to give them a call
Summary
Possessing genetic advantages that offer the potential for immortality in a near-future New York City, a high-achieving exchange trader dealing in human organs is forced to choose between her future and her estranged father's suicide-oriented circle
