In The Immortalists we have a very flawed scientist researching cures for a disease that has made his 10 year old age incredibly quickly. He’s angry, he’s struggling to raise money and as he looks for more money and ideas, he stumbles on research from a colleague that he suspects might have implications for his work.

Then people start dying and he goes on the run with his wife and daughter. He realizes quickly that he needs to cut ties and does so by going to an old patient, a former solider, for help. As you might guess, he’s pursued. A group of wealthy people have discovered a treatment to make them live longer and want to keep it a secret.

It’s a thrilling ride. He manages to get away, but it found years later. I won’t disclose what happens, but we learn that life has a balance.
