The Axis Legacy

Someone is stalking them.

A murdered girl matches the MO of a serial killer already in jail.
Missing pages form a message that the wolves need to decipher before Miranda Industries get their hands on it.

Eleri and Donovan have one case but more problems than they can count. Too many links call them back to old cases and bring up new questions about their boss. Whose side is he on anyway when all his agents distrust him? Is he pulling threads only he can see? Or is something more sinister guiding his directives?
Threats come from every direction… even in their dreams.

Eleri and Donovan won’t survive this one easily. If at all.

This is the twelfth installment in the NightShade Forensic FBI Files.

Eleri and Donovan are seamlessly developed within the tapestry of story that keeps you turning the pages. They possess a fascinating mix of strengths and weaknesses that make their harrowing march toward truth breathtaking and plausible.
