A future dystopia in which the bodies of the masses disappear into organ banks and immortals are hunted for their precious blood -- a cure for all of mankind's ills, including death.

When their secret becomes known, they are ruthlessly hunted for their blood.

The author also wrote a novelization of the series, entitled THE IMMORTAL (1970)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 182. A fine copy. (#158088).
