When an eco-tourist is infected with the larvae of an ancient parasite, their effect on him is staggering. He becomes ill and dies, only to become resurrected hours later with his aging in rapid reverse. Better than any anti-aging treatment, his lined and brittle skin soon becomes smooth and supple, his thinning hair lush and full, his sagging body taut and slim once more. News of this remarkable man soon reaches Tom Bell, an aging pharmaceutical billionaire working on extending life, who makes it his business to acquire both the man and the enzyme the larvae are releasing. But the enzyme responsible for youth is old and so prone to mutation that its genetic synthesis produces a contagious virus capable of infecting people with extreme longevity. For Tom, the virus is his only means of cheating death, and he will stop at nothing to obtain it, including sacrificing the lives of those around him. In his way stands a frightened government and its law enforcement agencies, ready to kill anyone coming into contact with it. But when the stakes are this high, just how far would a government go to suppress the truth from the public? Ultimately, what happens if Methuselahs Virus threatens to spread to the entire planet?
