Description

Journalist Madison Webb is obsessed with exposing lies and corruption. But she never thought she’d be investigating her own sister’s murder. Madison refuses to accept the official line that Abigail’s death was an isolated crime. She uncovers evidence that suggests her sister was the third victim in a series of killings hushed up as part of a major conspiracy.

In a United States that now bows before the People’s Republic of China, corruption is rife. She can’t trust the police, and the authorities dictate what the “truth” is. With her life on the line, Madison must give up her quest for justice—or face the consequences. . . .
