Clifford D. Simak's Why Call Them Back from Heaven postulates a time in which all of humanity has been given the right to be frozen and revived after the puzzle of human immortality has been worked out.
This right is extended to all people, regardless of wealth or social standing, but this seeming egalitarianism may in fact be an illusion. Those who haven't amassed enough investments to remain "caught up with the Joneses" will find themselves, upon awakening, consigned to an immortal life of poverty, unable to compete...
Immortality - The ultimate reward: To come back to life - and never die again - that's what Forever Center promises the human race. And that's why, in the year 2148, people spend their whole lives in poverty, giving all their money to Forever Center to ensure their happiness and comfort in the next eternal life.
Daniel Frost is a key man at Forever Center. When he accidentally stumbles onto some classified documents, Dan incurs the wrath of an unseen enemy who has him framed and denounced as a social outcast. With the notorious mark of ostracization on his forehead, he is condemned to the desperate life of a hunted animal. But a few people will risk their lives to help him: Ann Harrison, the renegade lawyer who is convinced of his innocence, and Mona Campbell, the brilliant mathematician who has discovered some shattering information about Forever Center...and the essence of life itself.
