New Life Incorporated
Cover by Phatpuppy Art.
The Longevity Chip is a marvel of biotechnology—an implant that slows aging and ensures virtual immortality. It’s safe, affordable, and guaranteed. Thousands have been sold, and thousands more are in production, quickly making New Life Incorporated the wealthiest, most powerful corporation on the globe. The fountain of youth, it seems, has at long last been found. But the Resisters aren’t buying it; they suspect the Chip has some guarded, secret purpose, and seek the truth of its design. Still, truth often comes at great cost—as their increasingly violent confrontations with the Lifers, who defend the source of their newfound “salvation,” attest. As far as Joe Ramsey is concerned, he’d just as soon stay out of it. But when he inadvertently thwarts the assassination of a key Resister, Joe is thrown headlong into a tangle of deceit, treachery, and intrigue that may prove New Life CEO Caleb Walker the most dangerous man on earth.
“You want to change things, Joe, but you can’t. Not like this. You can’t save what’s been left behind. Only what’s in front of you.”
I love this author and this is no exception!,

This is not my first book by Mrs. Hooley, and this one did not disappoint. I loved the characters, the sci-fi aspect, the plot and the interwoven pieces of humanity that made it real, such as love and regret. She grabs you from the start, and takes you for journey in all of her books. In this one in particular you are introduced to a world born out of her imagination, yet are drawn to the characters as if they were in your world. I recommend this book highly.
