It's 2094. Paul Blake, a suicidal, schizophrenic police officer, is dragged into a manhunt for Lazarus, the terrorist who has stolen the Holy Grail of science: Death reversion.
But as the bodies pile up, Blake discovers that he has a central part to play in Lazarus's plans - plans that Blake himself made possible. More
On a colonised planet, Homicide Inspector Paul Blake breaks under the strain of his son’s death and slits his wrists in a bathtub. After two days dead, he wakes up in a hospital without so much as a scratch. And life will never be the same again.
A year later. Blake investigates the brutal murder of a woman who worked for the world’s most powerful organisation, the GCMRD. Soon after, a colleague of hers confesses to her murder and commits suicide.
Still reeling from the events, Blake receives a mysterious call from someone who calls himself Lazarus, and is suddenly exposed to the GCMRD’s most recent scientific achievement:
Bringing back the dead.
As the bodies begin to pile up, Blake finds that he is more involved than he originally thought – or remembered. Lazarus has a plan that seeks to make a new world on the ashes of the old one, a new world inhabited by those he brings back from the dead. And he couldn't have done it without Blake’s help.
