Secret Service Agent Ronan Dooley has been on the job for a very long time. How long? He's over 200 years old--the result of living as an ongoing consciousness downloaded into a succession of cloned bodies. But something's gone very wrong, and now Dooley has to solve the biggest case of his life: his own murder. From official release/information:
Product Description: Today you die. Today you are reborn. Today you hunt the man who killed you. It's Lee Child vs. Altered Carbon in a high-tech blast of tough-as-nails future thrills. Matt Forbeck arrives as the new king of high-concept - with a blockbuster action movie in a book. In the near future, scientists solve the problem of mortality by learning how to backup and restore a persons memories into a vat-bred clone. When Secret Service agent Ronan "Methusaleh" Dooley is brutally murdered, he's brought back from the dead to hunt his killer, and in doing so uncover a terrible conspiracy.
