After a brutal murder, obituaries writer Matt Kasey stumbles on a sinister cover-up of a deadly contamination, but will he live to expose it?
When Nathan Daniels, a wildlife conservation student, is murdered in the home of an elderly couple, Matt Kasey, the disgraced local obituaries writer, finds himself drawn into the investigation. Tracing Nathan's last few hours, Matt becomes convinced that Nathan had discovered a sinister cover-up of a deadly contamination, but could his research have gotten him killed?
When the young court reporter working the case with him dies in a suspicious traffic accident, his editor cuts him loose, telling Matt not to come back without the story. Enlisting the help of a local news cameraman, an old school friend in the police force, and Amiti Chopra, another reporter who is by turns infuriating and alluring, Matt is soon up to his neck in the action.
Three explosions and one death later, Matt and Amiti are on the run from the agents of The Energy Research Institute (TERI), the company they are trying to expose.
With their friends dropping faster than the endangered wildlife, Matt and Amiti have to put their personal and professional differences aside if they are going to survive.
