Description
Trying to find out the truth about her husband's death, headstrong Lucy Greene stumbles on dangerous secrets about a government-sponsored biological warfare program that has maimed her past and threatens her future The story is that Lucy Greene's husband, Carl, died in a car accident. But why did Carl contact Lucy's high-school sweetheart Kevin, a recently discredited TV journalist, just a few days before he died with promises of a big story? Why does an intruder break into Carl's home office after the funeral? And what does any of this have to do with a rash of prison TB, their baby's encephalocele, or Lucy's brother's post-Gulf War illness?Lucy wants some answers, and before she knows it she's careening across the western landscape with a hired killer on her trail, warned that she's messing with some very big players. She's not alone-in helping her, Kevin wants to resuscitate his career and ex-con Darcy wants to protect her junkie sister who's still on the inside. But with her loved ones dead and a Glock for a new best friend, Lucy is the one who will do whatever it takes to uncover the real story behind her husband's death.
