A crazed gunman goes on a wild rampage through a string of fast food restaurants, claiming the lives of more than twenty innocent victims. Though still at large, security cameras have captured his image and the police have launched a full-scale manhunt.Johnny Whrister is a fledgling lawyer who is determined to make a name for himself. Unfortunately, he has just lost his very first case. Yet the bitter taste of failure has only intensified his desire to succeed.When a distraught man named Frederick Pastling shows up unannounced at his office begging for help, Johnny immediately recognizes that this could be the case that will get his career back on track-for Frederick Pastling admits to being the fugitive being sought by the police in connection with the restaurant massacres.But the thing is: while Frederick Pastling admits that he did in fact kill one man-his wife's lover-he swears he is innocent of the other slayings. Yet he can't deny that it is his face that appears on the damning videotapes. The real killer must be a dead ringer for Pastling.Johnny's investigation into his new client's life reveals a chilling possibility. Could there be a link between Pastling's former job at a federally funded medical research facility and the existence of the monstrous doppelgänger?In this spine-tingling tale of suspense, the young lawyer's own life will be put in jeopardy, as his probing inquiry takes him ever closer to the truth.The Clone is a riveting contemporary novel that combines all the intrigue of a courtroom drama with the terrifying mystery of a medical thriller.
