Florida investigative reporter, Whitney Steel, has lived in the shadow of her legendary father long enough. To prove herself she needs to find the “Big” story.
She found it. Now it may kill her.
After receiving a lead pointing to the world’s first cloned human, now a small child, Whitney vows to unravel the truth. However, sifting through the facts proves to have dangerous results, including death threats and murder.
When she’s nearly killed, but is saved by undercover FBI Special Agent, Blake Neely, he refuses to let her get in the way of his own objective–at least not right away.
Caught in a lethal game between a billionaire obsessed with genetic perfection, his hit man’s thirst for retribution, and a Colombian drug lord fresh out of prison determined to make Blake pay for his twin brother’s death over a decade ago…
Can they save an innocent child before it’s too late?
Faced with tough choices, with deadly consequences for many–Whitney soon realizes that sometimes a story becomes more than just a story.

Eyeing the open travel bag on the ceramic floor, Whitney bent and slipped her hand into the bag. Wrapped between a shirt and a pair of boxers, cold metal touched her fingers. She pulled the item out of the bag. A gun. Her stomach knotted as she stared at the weapon. The truth struck her hard.
Nathan had sent Blake to kill me.
The water stopped. The shower doors opened.
She leveled the gun at Blake’s chest. “Stay right there.”
He froze. “Guess you found my gun.” He stepped out of the shower stall. Water pooled at his feet. “We both know you’re not going to shoot me.”
