A suspicious murder leads two female detectives--one a local homicide cop, the other a CIA analyst--into a world of intrigue in this locked-room murder mystery set on a high-security Air Force base in Colorado Springs.
Terry Guzman, a programmer at Schriever Air Force Base, is brutally stabbed to death with a screwdriver during a full-up War Game. At the time when Terry was killed, she was working in a small sealed room on the high-security base. The other seven Gamers are the only suspects--and each one of them had a plausible motive for murder. Detective Eileen Reed is the local detective assigned to Colorado Springs' five military establishments who must discover who killed Terry.
As it turns out, the case is bigger than just the one murder. When the killer strikes again, Eileen begins to see larger implications in his violence.
In the meantime, Lucy Giometti, a brilliant and extremely pregnant CIA analyst, enters the investigation from her Washington, D.C., desk in the course of cracking an elite spy ring. When her prime suspect disappears just hours after Terry's murder, Lucy concludes that Terry had been supplying him with classified information. Her investigation leads her first to an international terrorist, and then on to Schriever Air Force Base, where she joins forces with Detective Reed. The two women rely on experience, intuition, and each other as they team up to thwart both the murderer and the terrorist plot.
With an insider's knowledge and a true sleuth's instincts, Bonnie Ramthun has created a taut mystery fraught with tension and surprise.
