Talk about a toxic neighborhood!
An area of Baltimore called the Zone is the hapless poster child for chemical-spill fallout. Quaid’s motley group is struggling to survive in the second chapter of her terrific series starring Tina Clancy. The dangerous oddities of the Zone add plenty of menace to this quick-paced tale of a young woman attempting to deal with her unusual biological roots. Quaid, aka Patricia Rice, has hit on a winning formula!

Zone resident Tina Clancy is thrilled to finally be a practicing attorney even if she’s just doing grunt work for a judge. Then, things in the Zone take a terrifying turn. Acme Chemical suffers another spill, releasing a noxious pink and green cloud. Frantic residents try to avoid the gas, but not all are successful. Those affected turn briefly violent, then fall into a coma. When Tina’s dangerous half-sister, Sarah, and another friend fall comatose and are taken by Acme, Tina, her former boss Andre Legrande and others set out to rescue them.
