Slide 1

At four-hundred-thousand-tons and almost a mile in length, INFERNO  is the size of 5 Nimitz class aircraft carriers lined up bow to stern–the largest ship ever constructed.

Slide 2

The INFERNO has a maximum capacity of 66,000 prisoners, all in lockdown 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Cell “amenities” include one bunk, one sink, one toilet, and an automatic spigot that delivers the daily ration of liquefied food known as “process.”

Slide 3

When a tactical nuclear strike goes awry and plunges the world into chaos, a corrupt government attempts to cover its crimes and eliminate its political enemies by sending the INFERNO on a course to destruction.

Slide 4

Betrayed by the government he had faithfully served, former Black Ops agent Sands Simon is branded a traitor and forced to fight for his life in the steel-cage death matches staged on INFERNO for the amusement of the super-rich. His only code is survival, his only hope that he won’t be forgotten by those he used to love.
