Col. Ross Clayton is a dedicated scientist, devoted to his wife Irene, his ten year old son, Tommy, and his four year old daughter, Amanda. He is also a dead-ringer for Blake Arletti, a hit man trying to escape his past and outrun an assassin. When their paths cross, Ross's life comes apart in horrific fashion. Having fallen ill with a mutated virus, Ross is implanted with ERIC-D, an experimental, radio-isotope fueled pacemaker. And when he is mistaken for Blake, murdered and buried in the park, it isn't long before the damaged pacemaker enhances the mutation of the virus and Ross is reanimated in a near primordial state. Now, neither living nor dead, he is faced with the loss of everything he ever cared about. And when the assassin crosses paths with his family and murders Amanda, Ross must force himself to find one last strand of humanity. In a desperate act to bring back the daughter he loves, Ross sets in motion something more chilling than anything anyone could have imagined.
