Devastated, and desperate for answers, Jennifer takes emergency leave from school and heads to India. With the discovery of other unexplained deaths followed by hasty cremations, Jennifer reaches out to her mentor, New York City medical examiner Dr. Laurie Montgomery.As the death count grows, so do the questions, leading Laurie, along with her husband, Dr. Jack Stapleton, to unveil a sinister, multilayered conspiracy of global proportions.About the Author:
