Dr. Samantha Owens is starting over: new city, new job,
new man, new life. She’s trying to put some distance between herself and the
devastating loss of her husband and children—but old hurts leave scars.
Before she’s even unpacked her office at Georgetown
University’s forensic pathology department, she’s called to consult on a case
that’s rocked the capital and the country. An unknown pathogen released into
the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died—just three.
Amid the media frenzy and Homeland Security alarm bells,
Sam painstakingly dissects the lives of those three victims and makes an
unsettling conclusion. This is no textbook terrorist causing mayhem with broad

compelled to do the wrong thing for the right reasons. Only his disturbing kinship
with a killer can lead Sam to the truth … and once more into the line of fire. Download and start listening now!
