Summary

Two New Orleans investigators are up against an inhuman killer in this “sleek, fast-moving” mystery (Kirkus Reviews).   When criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn goes to meet an anonymous admirer, the date ends before it begins—as the man drops dead at her feet. Now, yet again, her evening’s companion is her bulky boss, chief medical examiner Andy Broussard.   Broussard deduces that the man died carrying a lethal pathogen comparable to the Ebola virus. And when another body is found with the same infection, the threat of a pandemic becomes all too real. But while the danger to the public must be contained, the threat is far more personal than Broussard or Franklyn realize. Because the carrier’s still out there—and he’s looking for Broussard.   “Entertains even as the gruesome death count mounts. . . . Against the humid, wild and funky Crescent City setting, Donaldson delivers some genuinely heart-stopping suspense.” —Publishers Weekly

    When a dead woman is found floating in the pool of a fashionable Fort Lauderdale home, police lieutenant Kenneth Kelly already knows this isn’t going to be a simple homicide. The house belongs to the late Dr. Fredrick Rhineman, a cunning mastermind whose devious scheme resulted in multiple murder victims...and left a dangerous chemical formula and ten million dollars in cash unaccounted for.
     
    It seems someone is still looking for the formula and the money. So when the dead woman’s husband wants answers and a PI, Kelly calls in Jake Wayde, who worked the previous case. Rhineman’s son, Jeffery, has disappeared and is on the run: He’s reneged on a deal to sell the deadly formula to Middle Eastern operatives. And since he’s now suspected of having both the formula and the cash, Kelly and Wayde need to find Jeffery before the vengeful Palestinians and Iranians do.
     
    The FBI soon becomes involved as Wayde and Kelly race to follow the twisting trail of clues—and dead bodies—that may lead to Jeffery’s whereabouts. Can they stay one step ahead of the killers, find Jeffery, and keep the deadly chemical formula from falling into the wrong hands?

    When attorney Jack Newlin discovers his wife dead in their home, he's convinced he knows who killed her—and is equally determined to hide the truth. He decides to frame himself for murder, and to seal his fate he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find: a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary DiNunzio from the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato & Associates. But hiring Mary may turn out to be his biggest mistake. She doubts Jack's confession, and her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants to convict himself. Smarter, gutsier, and more persistent than she has any right to be, Mary sets out to prove what really happened—because, as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.
