It’s a Generation From Now and Justice May Be Dead.
In a future America still recognizable as our own, the outbreak of a vampire virus becomes front-page news. An infected trial lawyer named Morgan Lorenz sues the corporation that tried to conceal the existence of the virus, claiming medical negligence on a massive scale.
Facing potential bankruptcy, the Benjamin Rush Health Initiative files a unique motion. They say Lorenz cannot sue, because he’s no longer human. For him, and all vampires like him, the Constitution simply doesn’t apply.
Infinity DeStard and her “Forced Protection” team are assigned to kill Lorenz before the case reaches the Supreme Court. It’s hard to fake enthusiasm ever since her own infection, but she has no choice. If she breathes a word about her condition, her team will execute her.
In the face of injustice, how long can she lie to them. and herself?
