Amanda Kline had it all. A PhD from MIT and a high paying job with one of the top communications companies in Metro D.C. She was climbing the corporate ladder fast. Career building was her priority, so she quickly shrugged off the hurt when her old friend, Sam, walked out of her life without so much as a goodbye. Then, out of the blue, he walks back in and turns her world upside down. Now, both are running for their lives and won’t be able to stop until they find someone to help them prevent what was fast becoming a living nightmare.
In a little backwoods country town; they found that help. Old Doc Winters. Amanda took a leap of faith and told him what they thought was about to unfold. The leap paid off. Old Doc knew just the right person to help them. His nephew, CIA Deputy Director, Peter Winters. But… could they convince him they were telling the truth, or would he write them off as being a couple of crackpots?
Excerpt: The fog on the ground and the darkness felt like something out of a Jack the Ripper movie. She didn’t scare easily, but her grasp on the steering wheel made her knuckles hurt. She didn’t feel safe. Sam had told her where to park, but she decided on a better place. She could see where she was supposed to be, so Sam should be able to see her.
The longer she waited the more nervous she became. To ease the tension, she turned the radio on low and closed her eyes to listen to the soft music. The midnight hour came and went. Had something had gone wrong?
A tap on the window startled her. A man held up what appeared to be a badge of the D.C. Police Department. He wasn’t in uniform, but did have the badge.
“You need to get out of the car.”
Something felt wrong. "Let me see your identification first.” The man flashed the badge again, not giving her a chance to see. The hair on the back of her neck prickled when her eyes met his.
