An unknown pathogen released into the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died—just three. A miracle and a puzzle…

Xander Whitfield, a former army ranger and Sam's new boyfriend, knows about doing the wrong thing for the right reasons. And it's his disturbing kinship with a killer that can lead Sam to the truth…and once more into the line of fire.
