Trying to find out the truth about her husband's death, headstrong Lucy Greene stumbles on dangerous secrets about a government-sponsored biological warfare program that has maimed her past and threatens her future

The story is that Lucy Greene's husband, Carl, died in a car accident. But why did Carl contact Lucy's high-school sweetheart Kevin, a recently discredited TV journalist, just a few days before he died with promises of a big story? Why does an intruder break into Carl's home office after the funeral? And what does any of this have to do with a rash of prison TB, their baby's encephalocele, or Lucy's brother's post-Gulf War illness?

Lucy wants some answers, and before she knows it she's careening across the western landscape with a hired killer on her trail, warned that she's messing with some very big players. She's not alone-in helping her, Kevin wants to resuscitate his career and ex-con Darcy wants to protect her junkie sister who's still on the inside. But with her loved ones dead and a Glock for a new best friend, Lucy is the one who will do whatever it takes to uncover the real story behind her husband's death.

Bioflux is responsible in some way for several biological phenomena dating from 1970 (when U.S. germ warfare was officially banned), among them the neural tube disorders that killed Lucy's child, Gulf War syndrome and a strange and fatal illness that ravaged the Colorado prison system in the 1990s.
