Have you ever wished that you could live forever? The Immortalists is a gripping new thriller about the dark forces that are chasing the dream of immortality in an age when it could actually happen.

Princeton bioethicist, Gretchen Mueller, is on a mission to find her missing husband, Lucas, who has vanished while on assignment in Romania. When she gets there, she encounters the enigmatic, Mrs. Ingred Gusti, who has made it her life's work to unlock the last great secret of human biology: the mystery of why we age. Mrs. Gusti was once a world famous Soviet scientist, known to Presidents and Kings alike. The scientific community has long since forgotten her name, but her ambitions burn just as brightly and she is determined to crack the code of immortality before she dies.

As the search for Gretchen's husband continues, the young bioethicist finds herself being sucked into Ingred's strange and sepulchral world. What follows is an extraordinary adventure, through a land where time has indeed stood still and where the influences of an old and evil regime still lingers.

Who can Gretchen believe in a culture so steeped in superstition and mistrust? And what, if anything, does Ingred have to do with the disappearance of her missing husband?

Acclaimed author, T.M. Jenkins, brings us a spine-chilling thriller that captures the greed and ambition that surrounds scientific breakthroughs and offers us a parallel dimension into one of the most enduring tales of all time - that of Bram Stoker's, Dracula.

IN PRAISE OF T.M. JENKINS' 'THE WAKING':

'Riveting. Think Tess Gerritson meets Philip K. Dick. The Waking is not only a fast-paced thriller, it is also a well-researched exploration of an all too believable dystopian future.' - MO HAYDER

'A startling, original novel. A provocative, credible story that grips, fascinates and disturbs right to the very last line.' - PETER JAMES
