Soulminder - Timothy Zahn

1 minute read Published: 2018-12-13

GoodReads summary: For Dr. Adrian Sommers, a split second of driving while distracted leads to tragedy-and obsession.

Sommers's vision is to capture a dying person's life essence and hold it safely in stasis while physicians heal the body from injury or disease. Years of experimentation finally end in success—but those who recognize Soulminder's possibilities almost immediately corrupt its original concept to pursue dangerous new frontiers: body-swapping, obstruction of justice, extortion, and perhaps even immortality.
