The first book in the "Incarnations of Immortality" series. A young man--at the end of his tether and about to commit suicide--suddenly finds that he has become Death with a capitol "D." Required by the laws of the universe to collect the souls of those who are dying, he travels the Earth unseen by all but those who are moments away from death. As he tries to come to terms with his new existence, he meets other Immortals and begins to fathom his place in the universe.
