‘Risen from the Ashes’ By Jon Daniels

A John Doe is found stumbling from the remains of a car, sent to a New York dump for disposal. Naked, wounded and no way to identify him. He breaks free from the hospital when the nurse in charge attempt to put him in a psych hold and makes his way to the only place in the city he knows: The address to an abandoned subway station he gave to the nurse as his residence.

The place is not abandoned and it looks like other people are searching for someone. They find him and try to attack him. While John shows himself more than adept at handling them, help comes in the form of a young woman with a sniper rifle across the street. She calls for them to go into the subway station, where he finds that the place was something of a hideout for the woman and her partner. She questions why John is there.

The woman explains that her partner was a phoenix, and various powerful elements in the city have wanted to have such a powerful creature on their side. She went out to work out a deal to get them both out of the city the night before and never came back.

The longer they speak and work together, as a few snippets of memory start to return, it becomes apparent that John is the phoenix returned, and they need to find his murderer before they try again.
