Winner of Connecticut Press Club Award for Best Fiction!

Fahimah Banaz has been wrongly held in a CIA “black site” for over five years. Now, as cases of unexplained deaths—marked by rapid decomposition—are cropping up across the U.S., Homeland Security is willing to bend any rule to find the source of the deadly infection, even if it means resurrecting a "dead" Iraqi biochemist. Fahimah’s sister risked her life trying to destroy the super-microbe that causes the flesh-eating disease. Fahimah tried, too, but landed in prison.

Austyn Newman was sent to gain the cooperation of the scientist. Arriving in Afghanistan, he recognizes that the CIA has been holding the wrong sister all these years. They need her, but how will he gain her trust?

With time running out, Austyn must help Fahimah find her way through war-ravaged Iraq and Kurdistan...for the answer lies at the end of her journey home.
