Hamlyn paperback, 1981. Cover artist uncredited.

"The Earth is long since dead, blasted in a self-sustaining chain reaction. Human survivors settled on Venus have organised themselves into a static, class-ridden society living in huge citadels buried beneath the Venusian seas. 
The rulers are Immortals, genetic mutations who live a thousand years or more. Their subjects are the ordinary people with normal life spans. 
Sam Reed's insane father had him mutilated as a baby so that he doesn't realise he's an Immortal until he reaches the age of eighty. 
Then he goes looking for revenge..."
