Summary
Sabrina Galloway is the top scientist at
EcoEnergy, leading the company's research
team to a successful breakthrough in the
quest for an alternative fuel. The promise of a
cleaner tomorrow and the economic impact
on world markets could be staggering. Then
she makes an alarming discovery: someone
has tampered with the production process,
resulting in toxic waste leaking into the
Florida waterways and the Gulf of Mexico.



Fighting mounting terror fueled by too many
accidents and untimely deaths, Sabrina pieces
together the grim puzzle. The evidence
points to a cover-up orchestrated by the
chief executives of EcoEnergy. Now her
determination to expose the company's
secret has placed her in the crosshairs of a
conspiracy that reaches further than she
could ever imagine--America's biggest
traitors are lurking behind the doors of one
of the highest offices in the land.



Desperate, Sabrina flees the company with
damning evidence, aware that an enemy with
eyes and ears everywhere makes each move
a gamble. Running for her life with nowhere
to hide and no one to trust, Sabrina knows
her next step could be her last....
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Kava takes a break from her Maggie O'Dell FBI profiler series (A Necessary Evil, etc.) with a fine topical thriller involving terrorism, government coverups and toxic waste. Sabrina Galloway, a young Chicago professor, becomes a hands-on scientist in Florida with EcoEnergy, a company that specializes in TCP--a process that converts refuse and other waste material into oil. EcoEnergy's CEO is angling for a $140 million military government contract, but after Sabrina's boss mysteriously disappears and Sabrina discovers a reactor processing something it shouldn't, her life becomes as endangered as Florida's waterways. She hits the road in a '47 Studebaker with Miss Sadie, a gutsy 81-year-old African-American neighbor, to find help, while Middle Eastern terrorists plot a nasty surprise for an upcoming energy summit. Engaging supporting characters include Leon, a funky hit man losing his touch but not his heart, and covert operative Natalie Richards, "a black Emma Peel." Kava lightens the seriousness with some deft touches of humor. Genre fans weary of serial-killer fare will find this a refreshing read. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
