Marlene Dreyfus, an expert technical writer for a cutting-edge Phoenix aerospace firm, is drawn into a maelstrom of terror when her colleague Sam Garfield is found dead in a company hallway. Sam is covered in blood, with a huge knife sticking in his back.
Everyone is under suspicion as Security starts to investigate. Why was Sam Garfield killed? Was he involved in industrial espionage? Was he selling high tech secrets to foreign agents? Or had he uncovered the real perpetrator? Who will be next?
Marlene and her colleagues start looking over their shoulders—and at each other. Marlene is romanticallyh interested in engineer Kevin Bronson—could he know more than he lets on? Assigned to replace Sam as project chief for a multi-million dollar proposal, Kevin has much to gain by Sam’s death.
But suspects abound, and the clock is ticking. With so many baffling leads and dead ends, Marlene must find the killer before he (or she) strikes again.
Besides murder and love at work, Marlene has a home life to deal with. Daughters Fran and Cynthia add to Marlene’s trials. Where did Bruce Underwood, Fran’s fiancée, get the money for the mega-mansion he’s building in Scottsdale? Why does Cynthia support her sister’s former stalker?
