Publisher's Summary

Allie Keane's breakthrough in quantum computing holds the key to unlocking eternity. But can she survive long enough to use it? A riveting science-fiction thriller from the million-copy NY Times best-selling author.

"Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton." (SFBook.com)

When Allie Keane makes a revolutionary discovery in quantum computing, she kicks the ultimate hornets' nest. She doesn't know it, but a hidden battle for tech supremacy is raging around the world, and whoever controls her discovery will dominate the globe. Soon, Allie is being hunted by ruthless forces desperate to learn her secret, and only Zachary Reed, a gifted operative within a shadowy government agency, stands in their way.

But as extraordinary as Allie's breakthrough is, it holds the key to unleashing something far bigger. An unrelated technology thousands of years beyond current science. A staggering advance capable of bringing about a utopia, rewriting the laws of life and death, and helping humanity spread throughout the stars.

As long as it doesn't wipe out all life on Earth before that can happen....

The Immortality Code is a masterful thriller. One crammed with breakneck action, unexpected twists, mind-blowing science, and ethical dilemmas listeners will be contemplating long after they've heard the last word.

"Richards is an extraordinary writer", (Dean Koontz) who can "keep you turning the pages all night long". (Douglas Preston)

I love this author!

As always, a fantastic story with mind blowing leaps of thought, an incredible twist and fascinating science.
Characters are likeable/hateable: perfect.
Just gotta get used to a guy reading the female lines on Audible lol.

Laughable character development

The ideas put forth in the story are fascinating. But the dialogue is cringe-worthy. The author writes the interaction amongst the characters as though he’s never had a real conversation. The depiction of the female lead in particular borders on insulting.

A great audience double-cross

I loved this novel like all of the others by Richards. This one in particular tickled me because I was sure of the plot from the very beginning only to be blindsided at several turns. The title is very appropriate, and while some of the dialog is a bit cringy at times, I feel it captures the subtle charm of what it is to be human. I can't wait to see what is next

Another great book!!!

Douglas E. Richards has become one of my favorite “future tech” authors. This is another great plot which will open your eyes to a future of infinite possibilities.

Not my favorite

I'm a big fan. I've read all of Richard's books and look forward to the next. This one was a dud though. It was so derivative of his other books, almost formulary. Most of the book was them sitting and talking to each other, very little actually happened in the story.

Engaging and Addictive

The story is engaging and it keeps a listener at the edge of their seat. As an added bonus, the lack of a lot of foul language makes it easier to listen to even with the teenagers

Just don’t bother

I couldn’t even finish this. I really thought I was getting a great sci-fi story but it just seemed like an old man getting ‘pleasure’ from writing over the top weapon descriptions. Don’t forget the damsel in distress cliche. It’s incredibly clear this was written by an old white man unfortunately. Incredibly predictable and boring. Just don’t waste your time on this.

Mindbending and still fun to read!

Have read several of your books and have loved them all! You remind me of how I felt as a teen watching Star Trek. Thought provoking and hopeful for mankind's future. Thanks

Truly the worst book i ve ever read

The opening 10 mins started good but it then is was downhill all the way. The story line is very thin, it bounces and lacks any coherent credibility. The science is complete nonsense non believable tat. The love back story is nauseous and i mean gut ranching puke. The audible is over 13 hrs i managed to hang in for 10 hrs hoping it would get better then realised i was wasting my life away listening . Dont waste your money and it this is a NY times best seller then i worry
