Amy Gibbs has been through enough–breaking her engagement was just the beginning, and her home holds too many memories. Memories that have kept her awake for far too many nights. So, when an opportunity arises to make a drastic change in her life, she jumps for it. Now, she leaves behind her home, her job, her friends, and her family.
Lynch Cully now faces a dilemma. He gave Amy all the space he thought she’d need after the death of her dad. Maybe too much. As part of the President-elect’s transition team, he becomes aware that Abdullah Said Abdi is not finished with Amy after she unwittingly foiled his terrorist plot. Racing to find her, he learns she is going to the airport. Destination unknown. He reaches out to her best friend, Macy Johnson, a woman who doesn’t hold him in much esteem . . . and who also has no idea where Amy is going. Lynch races time and the devil to find Amy, before losing her forever.
Even before the current on-going measles outbreak that seems to hold the media’s attention, I had wanted to do a book on the vaccine issue. Combining the idea with a missions trip my wife and I took in 2017 made the story an easy one to write, with its cat-and-mouse plot circling around that big lake in the SE Asian country where the story takes place.
Author’s Note: Little did I know what kind of firestorm my open support of the ex-vaxx movement would cause. I prefer the name ex-vaxx because the great majority of people in the movement once supported vaccines, until a child–their own or that of a friend–was killed or injured by vaccines. We would all love to see safe and effective vaccines. What we have now doesn’t fit that bill. Anyway, I’ve been insulted, libeled, and called names I haven’t heard since my days of denying drug seekers their opioid of choice in the ER. It’s been, shall I say ‘interesting?’
