A first novel.
Nothing bad ever happens in Fairhaven, Ohio. Not since the mysterious murder of little Samantha Baxter twenty-five years ago. Until, on a sultry July morning, a young Air Force officer, Sally Jastrow, dies in a secret experiment at the University.
Sheriff Alan Schneider and Air Force fighter pilot Toni Ashcroft team up to investigate the strange death which they suspect was not an accident. Soon, they discover some highly unusual facts about the scientific experiment: five young, ambitious, and extremely bright women are locked up in giant water-filled egg shells, sharing and exposing their most intimate thoughts and dreams through a top secret laboratory computer system.
The two investigators face steep challenges in their quest to solve the mystery. Not only do they have to delve deep into Fairhaven's secrets, they must also deal with the ghosts of their own personal past, including Toni's memory loss after a terrible plane crash in the Iraqi desert only six months ago. Almost magnetically attracted to one another, Alan and Toni know that peace will not return to Fairhaven unless they are willing to risk their own lives, and their own happiness.
