Britain in 2040 is a nation reeling from the effects of a severe economic recession that has seen the introduction of euthanasia clinics throughout the country. The elderly have become the whipping boy of the media and are widely derided because they are seen as having unfairly benefitted from a time of free education, economic boom and of rising property prices. One of these is John Anderson, an unassuming and decent living 85 year old retired school teacher who lives outside London. Depressed by years of living in a toxic social environment and under a government that is openly hostile to the elderly, he finally decides to die by euthanasia. These clinics claim to offer the sick and elderly a dignified death, free from pain at a time and place of their choosing. But John discovers that beneath the rosy veneer of the clinics there lies a living hell, which he is determined to expose. The scenario portrayed in this book is surely just a page in mankind's history book away from reality!
