    Summary:

    In the near future, climate change has hit hard, fires are burning, unemployment is high, and controversial longevity treatments are only available to the very rich. Enter resourceful DC police detective Jen B. Lu and her partner, Chandler, a SIM implant in her brain providing an instant link to the Internet and police records-and constant commentary inside her head. He's an inquisitive tough guy with a helluva sense of humor and his own ideas about solving crimes. As a detective in the Elder Abuse unit, Jen is supposed to be investigating kids pushing their aging parents to exit so that they're eligible to get the longevity drug. But what really has her attention are the persistent rumors about Eden, a black-market version of the longevity drug and the bizarre outbreak of people aging almost overnight, then suddenly dying. Is this all connected? Is Big Pharma involved? When Jen's investigations of Eden take her too close to the truth, she is suspended, Chandler is deactivated, and her boyfriend is freaked out by the thing inside her brain, leaving Jen to pursue a very dangerous investigation all by herself.
