Publisher Comments:

“A combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror” (R.L. Stine), this bone-chilling thriller explores the question: What price would you pay for eternal life?

When the body of a gunshot victim rolls into the Santa Fe morgue, it should be a day like any other for medical investigator Lillian Cruz. Yet something’s eerily different about this examination: the corpse appears to be more than a century old, with smallpox scars and an odd wound protruding from the victim’s leg. Lodged in the femur is a bullet shaped like a musket ball. It seems that the bullet was fired during the Civil War and has been in the victim’s leg ever since. Rattled by the discovery, Cruz instructs her assistant to take specimens to the state authorities immediately and not to tell a soul about it. Minutes after her assistant leaves, the lights go dark and Cruz is kidnapped.

When the kidnapping is discovered, the Defense Intelligence Agency calls in former war correspondent Ethan Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, to discreetly investigate the disappearance. Very soon, the case turns into something much more sinister. And with each new lead, Warner and Lopez inadvertently bring a dangerous individual closer to achieving a catastrophic goal: immortality.

In the spine-chilling tradition of Michael Crichton and James Rollins, Immortal takes you on a terrifying ride in the pursuit of a killer willing to go to all extremes.

Synopsis:

WOULD YOU KILL TO LIVE FOREVER?

When the body of a gunshot victim rolls into the Santa Fe morgue, it should be a d ay like any other for medical investigator Lillian Cruz. Yet upon examination, the corpse appears to be more than a hundred years old with smallpox scars, and an odd wound protrudes from the victim’s leg. Lodged in the femur, under decrepit scar tissue, is a bullet shaped like a musket ball. The bullet looks like it was fired during the Civil War and had remained in the victim’s leg ever since.

Rattled by the discovery, Cruz instructs her assistant to take specimens to the state authorities immediately and not to tell a soul about it. Minutes after the assistant leaves, the lights go dark in the morgue and Cruz is kidnapped.

The Defense Intelligence Agency calls in former war correspondent Ethan Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, to discreetly investigate the disappearance. And very quickly, a relatively simple case turns into something much more sinister. With each new lead they uncover, Warner and Lopez are inadvertently bringing a warped and dangerous individual closer to achieving a catastrophic goal: immortality.
