       Additional Information  
     
      Laurence Clark, the sole survivor of the Moribund Virus, doesn't look ninety-seven years old; in fact, he looks just as he did when he was cryogenically frozen over half a century ago. At that time, the U.S. was trying to recover from a depression, Hitler was rising to power, and the government took radical measures to create a new kind of viral weapon, using the residents of Estosolo, Arizona, as test subjects for secret medical experimentation. While everyone else was killed by these tests, Laurence's reaction was different: what didn't kill him made him stronger...much stronger. In him, The Final Cure was perfected, enhancing his senses and abilities, preventing aging, and leaving him nearly invincible. However, things go from bad to worse in the underground research facility, and Laurence must be placed in deep cryogenic sleep. When he awakens, he finds that the world isn't the only thing that has changed. As time goes on, Laurence discovers the people who revived him are not who they say they are, and he is forced to make decisions that could jeopardize the secrecy of the weapon he carries inside his body. Will he be able to uncover the truth before it's too late and stop those who would use The Final Cure for evil from accomplishing their deadly goal?
