County coroner Lillian Cruz makes
a surprising discovery while carrying out an autopsy on a body recently
brought into the local Santa Fe morgue. Lodged in the dead manís thigh
bone is a bullet, which carbon dating proves was fired during the Civil
War. But before she can notify the authorities, Cruz disappears.
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. High-concept, fast-paced, and masterfully executed, Immortal confirms Dean Crawford as a brilliantly ambitious new thriller writer.
