However, it is Reed’s last case that finds Robert trapped in a violent mission of blood, terror, revenge and clones. A scientist, Dr. Richard VanHellman, has finally uncovered the way to create clones. He intends to rule the world by murdering, and then cloning it’s most powerful people.

Once Robert realizes the buried link between himself and Dr. VanHellman, the mission becomes personal.
