Avery Case is a killer, and a survivor, and one mean son of a bitch. He's made it through the collapse of the government, and its mutant rebirth in the form of Homeland Security gone wild, as well as an engineered plague that came within days of wiping out mankind. Which it would have, but for him, actually. Now he's just tired and spent. Unfortunately the powers that be aren't through with him yet, and he finds himself on a train with other VIPs heading for a prison which is more of a death sentence than punishment. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, they say...and there's so much stuff that hasn't quite killed him yet that he's got to be the strongest bastard alive. Which he's going to need to be, to escape from The Eternal Prison

From official release/information:

Product Description: Avery Cates is a wanted man. After surviving the worst bioengineered disaster in history, Cates finds himself incarcerated - in Chengara Penitentiary. As Chengara has a survival rate of exactly zero, the system's most famous gunner must do some serious plotting. And a betrayal or so later, he achieves his goal. At a price.

All he has to do now is defeat some new personal demons, forge some unlikely alliances, and figure out why the people he's killed lately just won't stay dead.
