A woman's world is turned upside down when her estranged husband goes missing and she re-encounters another ex husband. While the cops are saying suicide, Jordan Quinn knows it's not and has to begin putting the pieces of the mystery together before she is next.
This was a good read; there are no lulls in the plot, and the ending is a great surprise!
Jordan Quinn was back in the Florida Everglades, where her teenage elopement with the fiercely proud Seminole Seth Cypress had ended. Now she was following her husband, brilliant scientist Lawerence Quinn, who was pursuing the cure for a disease shadowing humankind. It was a cure that might flow in the veins of the panther held sacred by the Seminoles, and hunted by someone who wanted it at any price. Then suddenly, horribly, Lawrence was gone, the panther was missing and Jordan was terribly afraid. A stalking enemy wanted her arrested for murder or else to be the victim of one. And the only person she could turn to was Seth Cypress, now Seminole chairman, who had bitterly fought her husband's plans and whose passionate love could be a mask for deadly hate....
Jordan Quinn left the Florida Everglades years ago after her teenage elopement with Seth Cyypress ended in chaos. But she is drawn back by her husband, Lawrence, a brilliant scientist whose theories about the Everglades' endangered panthers might hold the key to curing a deadly disease. When her husband disappears, Jordan fears that Lawrence's work might have come to close to those who hunt the panthers...or those who hold the animal sacred.
Her fears lead her to the Seminole community...and to Seth Cypress. He is vehemently opposed to the medical science that jeopardizes the ancient ways of his people, but now someone is threatening the woman he once loved. Uncertain of loyalities, Jordan and Seth must each decide who is to be trusted--and who is to be feared.
