Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old history teacher, but he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen it all. As long as he keeps changing his identity he can keep one step ahead of his past - and stay alive. The only thing he must not do is fall in love.


Tom Hazard appears 40-ish. But he’s much older. He has anageria – an incredibly rare condition which means he ages extraordinarily slowly. He can never allow himself the luxury of falling in love. After 450 years, Tom’s seen everything. Now he’s seen enough; he wants out. But it won’t be easy.
