Bestselling mystery author Susan Dunlap, acclaimed winner of two Anthony Awards and a Macavity Award, brings us a powerful new novel featuring private detective--and former medical examiner--Kiernan O' Shaughnessy.
Betrayed and set up to take the blame for a death caused by a deadly and highly contagious case of Lassa fever, Kiernan gets more than she bargained for when she responds to a call from an old college "friend." She knows that the death she's investigating could have truly dire consequences for the public if its cause is unleashed, inadvertently or otherwise. And the trail of clues she follows--from her base in San Diego to the Nevada desert--is agonizingly complex.
Not helping matters is her houseman, the usually affable Brad Tchernak. Tchernak may be a marvelous cook, companion, and dog feeder. But he's feeling overlooked as a detective, and that has created tension between him and his employer. While Kiernan pursues her case, Tchernak takes on one of his own, investigating a hotshot geologist who has just returned from a potentially multimillion-dollar oil find in Central America.
Of course, Tchernak's passion for this case may land him in mortal danger. And, as Kiernan investigates the suspicious and alarming death that could portend international disaster, she must grapple with her own demons--especially the stubborn self-reliance that may be her downfall. As the seemingly disparate cases intertwine, it becomes all too clear to Kiernan that she and Tchernak had better find what they're looking for, and fast, before they, too, become "bodies of evidence."
Praise for Susan Dunlap's previous novels:
"A fun and fast read."

"Deft and engrossing. . . a series marked by its vividly depicted setting and admirably controlled plots."
--The New York Times Book Review
"A deftly worked tale of murder."
--The Washington Post Book World
Death and Taxes
"Entertaining. . . clever. . . Dunlap takes an affectionate view of the iconoclastic artists, rebels, and intellectual vagabonds who constitute Berkeley's counterculture."
--The New York Times
"A poignant, suspenseful puzzler."
