To her mixed delight and dismay, Cupid’s arrow finds its mark, forcing her to confront her own mental demons—particularly her sexuality.
But there is vicious rivalry which splits the course into factions and Barbara finds herself in deadly peril deep in the bush.
Barbara must use her cadet training to survive this hostile environment, which will test her character and endurance to the limit.
Christopher Cummings is a Vietnam veteran, teacher, parent, traveller, Officer of Cadets, and author of 35 books. Bushwalking, history and travel have added depth to his experiences. He grew up in Cairns and Cape York Peninsula, experiencing many adventures in the North Queensland bush and at sea in his father’s ships, adventures he has woven into his books.
But this is no ordinary bivouac. Not only must she deal with the usual challenges of poor leadership, misbehaviour, and cadet fraternisation, she must deal with the scandalous Chloe Cummings and her propensity for nudity and outrageous behaviour.
But Barbara’s unit is drawn into a terrifying and deadly drama that will test her survival skills, leadership and courage to the limits.
Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.
After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. 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.
