There was no way I was going to go back to sleep until I finished the book. Yes, it was one of those.” ~Smitten with Reading

While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.
