Struggling to grasp the significance of his controversial scientific discovery, Reuben, an impassive marine biologist, is inadvertently imprisoned in a single moment in time. Initially enamored by the limitless possibilities of a motionless world, Reuben is soon shaken by the inhospitable nature of his new environment. The air is sparse and difficult to breathe. The liquids are thick and nearly impossible to drink. A nagging pain invades his brain, gnawing at his sanity. Reuben's search for answers is impeded by his vile curiosity, his hunt for meaning deterred by a terrifying concoction of lust, hallucinations and hopelessness. Though time has stopped for Reuben, it will inevitably continue, and though he may have forgotten, his actions have consequences, especially for the unlucky souls within his reach. As time passes, Reuben's reach extends, beyond the moment, beyond the lives of those in his immediate range - into the life of Lindon, an engineer with a disturbing link to structures, who suspects that when his bones break, the buildings around him crumble to the ground - and years later, to Ogden, a lonely young man with a unique discipline and a belief in the practice of telekinesis, elusive talents that may help him, of all people, uncover the mystery of Reuben's disappearance, and perhaps unearth an unimaginable opportunity, to rid the world of death, to secure for humanity an unprecedented immortality. A winding tale unfolding in three parts, Immanent Death navigates the consequences of one man's depravity, the possible reality of the supernatural, and the danger that accompanies humanity's obsessive quest for truth.
