Nearly two years after his wifes death, soon-to-be retired CIA agent and American hero, Jim Lantana, is running for the U.S. Senate and finally getting his life back on track. But when the CIA beckons him to complete one last, top-secret mission aboard a massive hospital ship called the Pura Vida, Jim is suddenly thrust back in the game. As captain of the ship, Dr. Horst Mendelbaum has operated in secret just outside the periphery of ethical medicine for decades. He and his staff conduct dangerous, experimental treatments - all funded by the worlds super-wealthy in a desperate attempt at life-extension. When the mission becomes one of life or death for everyone aboard, Jim discovers a dark, hidden connection between the dangerous ship and the truth behind his wifes death. As he fights to stay alive, Jim meets the beautiful Dr. Abigail Valquist - who is also trapped aboard ship - and unexpectedly finds his heart moved in ways he thought were little more than a memory. Pure Life is more than an action-packed thriller. It exposes profound moral and ethical questions about high-tech life-extension treatments available only to the super-rich. A story bound by passion and greed, it offers a frighteningly realistic vision of medical science - one that could forever change humanity as we know it.
