"A genius doctor is murdered, and a desert madman gains the means to kill millions. These two explosive events ultimately draw Major Margit Falk, a helicopter pilot and Pentagon lawyer, into a maelstrom of betrayal, deceit, and danger-and straight into the heart of the Pentagon's most precarious pet project. It is called Project Safekeep, an antimissile scheme under congressional investigation. Its chief engineer was the murder victim. The alleged murderer, and Falk's client, is a senior CIA officer and alleged homosexual. The smell of conspiracy is in the air, as Falk calls on her mentor, law professor Mackenzie Smith, for help. But it might already be too late-because what Falk is smelling might not be conspiracy. It might be nuclear fallout."; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall
