Backfire

by Christopher Newman

In 1963, a beautiful young girl dies in the middle of an abortion on a cold table in a motel room. The cover-up is quick, quiet and -- for almost thirty years -- worth every penny. Now it's 1991. At the dawn of a presidential campaign, the old secret suddenly surfaces. To one man it means enormous profit. To a second man it means a lethal mystery. When the stakes are high, there are no loyalties and no rules -- even for top-level U.S. government agents. Especially for them.
