Dr. Sydney Hale has just created the antidote to deadly toxin Sarin gas -- 600 feet underground. When security at the lab is infiltrated, she has to run for her life. Marine Jack Wilson is spending his morning on a game-thinning hunt when Dr. Hale runs into his arms, closely followed by gunfire. With a staggering number of people dead, including his three friends, Jack, wanting revenge, and Sydney, trying to protect and recreate her work, engage in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with an unknown assailant, unable to trust anyone -- not even each other.

This is an intense race against time, with betrayal hidden around every corner and tension eased only by love. With this book's intricate plotlines and vast number of characters, Fetzer's readers must follow along carefully to experience the full impact of the conclusion. (Mar., 336 pp., $14.00)
