A Sam Stone Novel
Deep down, six hundred and forty feet underground, danger lurks...
Jenny Strafford and her fiance, Stone, are out for a dinner date with friends. It’s supposed to be fun, romantic even, but the setting leaves much to be desired, at least for Jenny. She’s not fond of enclosed spaces, or being underground.
What starts out as a fun evening soon turns into a dangerous struggle to survive.
In order to protect Jenny, Stone must fall back on his military police training. And even those hard-won skills may not be enough to save the love of his life - and over a hundred other innocent people trapped underground with them.
Logan Stanley ignored the rocking motion under his feet as he stood rigidly in front of his boss. Anger flared through every bone in his body and he strained to keep it in check.
“You’re not serious, Sir?” Logan asked, staring hard at his superior, unwilling to believe that the man was so incredibly cold-hearted.
Dennis Malnon didn’t even flinch at his tone. The man seemed either not to notice Logan’s anger, or he simply did not care whether Logan was angry or not. Either way, what he was proposing was astounding, and Logan couldn’t let it go.
Slim, bordering on emaciated, the CDC supervisor was also overly tall, giving him a stork-like appearance. His long, beaked nose accentuated this resemblance, as did his beady eyes, slightly stooped shoulders and a head full of white hair that had been cut short, combed neatly and plastered to his skull with lots of hair product. The man’s angular, avian face showed no emotion as he gazed back at Logan.
“I’m completely serious, Logan. In situations like these, when you’re dealing with an unknown, a hundred or so lives is an acceptable loss when compared to a global pandemic.”
