The novel Longevity City published in hardback in the USA by Five Star in 2005 

             

"... a tale of internal politics, global power, ruthless annihilation of resistance, and the struggle of the disillusioned ... a tapestry of sub-plots ... characters are solid and their motivation clear ... realistic actions and reactions make for a plausible story of the not-too-distant future." - Peter McClean on Reviewcentre.com
