Annotation

The “Introduction” (v-viii) gives an almost entirely positive picture of the eutopia that will result from an immortality achieved through scientific advances. No disease, no crime, hence no prisons, no religion, and no war. “Unfortunately,” no family because no children and marriage will fade away. But the novel is about a murder that does occur committed by members of a secret society that believed immortality was the wrong choice for humanity. The novel contradicts the introduction in that there is a detective available, doctors are busy, and there is a priest.
