Nomination number seven on the 2010 list is Eternity Falls by Kirk Outerbridge (Marcher Lord Press).
Adult near future science fiction techno-thriller
It wasn’t supposed to happen. People who took the Miracle Treatment weren’t supposed to die-ever, especially not the famous movie star spokesperson for the Treatment.
And yet, that’s exactly what’s happened. The stunning starlet Greta Darling who looked 22 but was really 89, has suddenly died, of natural causes. Desperate to assure their billions of clients that the Miracle Treatment really does work, the company executives call in private investigator Rick Macey. Macey’s job is to find out what really happened to Greta Darling–or, failing that, to simply come up with some other explanation of how she died.
What others are saying:
An edgy hard-boiled future detective story, Eternity Falls sucks you into a dystopian world reminiscent of Blade Runner and Necromancer.

“Eternity Falls works on many levels, and I enjoyed the fast-paced conclusion that reminded me of “District 9.” The mystery elements are solid, if not anything too deep, and the sci-fi aspects grow more interesting as the story moves along.”
