From the Publisher:
In the spine-chilling tradition of Michael Crichton and James Rollins, the second Ethan Warner thriller is an action-packed blockbuster that combines science, suspense, and ingenious speculation.
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 man's 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.
