Description: Ruthless, unscrupulous, devastatingly handsome, and insatiable Judd Crane, the richest man in the world, has everything a man could want in life: an endless supply of money, women, power, and sex. But despite his vast riches, he realizes that he cannot escape death. From the author of The New York Times #1 bestselling novel The Carpetbaggers comes a tale of a fierce obsession--immortality. Determined to cheat death, Judd embarks on a dangerous path from Yugoslavia to China, from the sheltered paradise of his lush private island to a secret atomic city in the jungles of Brazil. Along the way, Judd will stop at nothing to find what he's looking for--including chancing death, endangering his fortune, outmaneuvering foreign agents, and, ultimately, risking both his business empire and the woman he loves--until the very last second, when he discovers the most vital secret of all.
