Intense and frightening, Wilhelm’s latest drops readers straight into the heart of a mystery that spans generations and countries, as well as incorporating drug dealers, pirates, assassins and corrupt government officials. It’s a finely plotted mystery wrapped in a human-rights tragedy that will keep readers guessing as they try to figure out the culprits.

After the tragic death of her fiancé, attorney Barbara Halloway left her father’s high-powered law firm to handle legal problems for the residents of Eugene, Ore. While she’s trying to plot her future, former pro football player Martin Owens and his wife Binnie ask for her help with an immigration problem. The U.S. wants to deport Binnie, despite the fact that it would be a veritable death sentence. Now, Barbara only has a dead woman’s letter and her own determination to prove that Binnie should not be deported, but her investigation soon unleashes a danger that proves Binnie’s plight is just the tip of a much more dangerous iceberg of trouble.
