The Immortality Virus Blurbs

This week’s mission, if I choose to accept it: Sell The Immortality Virus in 50 words, 150 words, and 250 words. The 150-word version will probably be the back of the book blurb. So, here goes (these are by no means final):

50 words:

When Jordan Lacklin finds a way to stop the human aging process, the world rejoices, but before long, the masses suffer. Four centuries later, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., agrees to find Jordan and help undo The Change, but not everyone is willing to give up their shot at immortality.

150 words:

In the mid-21st century, the human race stopped aging. Those who know why aren’t talking, and the few who are brave enough to ask questions tend to disappear. To an elite few, The Change means long life and health, but to the increasing masses, it means starvation, desperation, and violence.

Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find the man responsible for it all and solicit his help to undo The Change, if he’s still alive. To complicate matters, Grace’s employer is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police learn of their connection, they give her a choice – help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew Stanton and have her named cleared, or die. But if they discover Grace’s true mission, they won’t hesitate to kill her in order to protect their shot at immortality.

Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find Jordan Lacklin, the man who might be responsible for it all. She and her employer, Matthew Stanton, want to enlist his help to restore the natural aging process, but there’s no guarantee Jordan is alive after all this time. To make matters worse, Matthew Stanton is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police find out she’s working for him they give her a choice – help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew and have her named cleared, or die. But if they find out what Matthew has hired her to do, they’ll probably kill her anyway.

Grace has to duck warring factions in her search for the truth, ending up imprisoned as a slave on a farm while powerful enemies clash all around her. There she finds a new ally, Jordan’s grandson, Alex, and a shot at finding love again. At least, if the two of them survive.
