Money can buy anything, and now it can arrange an early exit - in the prime of life now, but terrified of illness and disease later, you can buy your own death. But when the crunch comes the contract has one unbreakable condition - you cannot cancel it.
He's a rich, anonymous white guy. When he's not making money in the boardrooms of multi-national pharmaceutical companies, he's at one of his palatial homes with his wife and daughter or he's deep cave diving in Belize. He enjoys power as well as money, and in all matters - business, pleasure, sex - he's happiest on dangerous ground. He only has one fear: the fear of being dependent on others. But money can buy the means to circumvent this indignity, and he buys into an organisation - dubbed 'Death's Angels' - who guarantee to kill him if he ever reaches that point. Certain of the parameters he's set, life goes on a normal. But it isn't long before his past and his genes catch up with him, and he wants to change those parameters. Nobody told him that things weren't going to be as easy as that. Because Death's Angels never back out of a bargain . . .
