Kate Cassidy refuses to believe her husband, Michael, is dead, even weeks later on her knees at his grave. Once the frontrunner in the Moto GP, he was killed by a hit and run driver mere hours after his last win. Like her soul, every dream, every promise of a better life, is shattered with the sudden loss of the man she'd lived her life to love.
He wakes in a tank, absent the memories of who he was. Dr. Alexander Madison has made him a weapon, an assassin used to eliminate the targets of nefarious world powers.
However, the carefully constructed world Dr. Madison and his cohorts have designed at BioTech Industries is about to unravel. They've underestimated the one they've labeled SOREN, and he's slowly making peace with the beast they've injected into his bloodstream. Michael wants his life back, but first, he'll have to get rid of a microchip in his brain, escape Madison's other creations, and forge a rocky relationship with a persistent detective. He's a pound of flesh from his wife's arms, and once he cuts Spekter's chains, retribution will finally be at hand.
