Dacia employed only the best, so rather than go to prison for life. She had worked out a rather nice little scheme. If only Jim had died with his balloon. Instead he had returned home just in time to save Jessie from the wolves. Jessie’s evidence condemned Dacia.
In prison Dacia had taken a near lethal dose of nerve toxin. Whilst the hospital doctors attempted to save her. Her instructions to Johnny had been clear. Use the cloned body. Stupidly the nerve toxic had been too toxic. Johnny had seen to that. Cryonics that was the answer.

Sorry if the link is a little tenuous, but who knows what goes on in the city at night.
