Terror has hit the West Coast with a vengeance—leaving a tunnel full of corpses beneath the Seattle streets, with a dark promise of far, far worse to come. Despite official attempts to keep the catastrophe under wraps, rogue journalist Frank Corso refuses to remain idle, immersing himself in a shadow world of senseless violence and unconscionable evil. For a strange connection that seems to tie one exceptionally brutal death with the impending destruction of thousands—perhaps millions—of innocent lives is pulling Corso and his best friend and ex-lover, photographer Meg Dougherty, deeper into the heart of a hideous conspiracy. And its nightmarish consequences will dwarf anything ever spawned by simple jealousy, greed, or bloodlust.

A longer silence ensued.
"Could have been worse, I suppose."
"Yeah, he could have taken the other."
"And we'd be booking flights to the Falklands."
A dry cough scratched the silence.
"Can you find him?"
"I put a transponder under the front seat."
"A judicious move."
"I'm an untrusting man."
"Find him then ... and see to it he's not going to be a problem."
"The others say he was getting crazy. Wanted to start things going right now. Didn't want to wait anymore."
"Find him before he does something stupid."Continues...
