    Review by John R. Lindermuth: Sisters Linda and Sara Almquist find themselves in danger from villains who have united in a common cause—silencing the two women for good.

    Linda, associate dean of a pain management facility, is scheduled to testify in court against her former boss, Dr. Abel Raines and Sara, an epidemiologist, is the person who fingered drug czar James Mazzone, in an earlier police investigation.

    With Mazzone a suspect in the murder of one of the chief investigators from that case, authorities persuade Sara to join a USAID team in Bolivia as a safety measure. It isn’t long before both sisters realize they are in jeopardy.

    In a plot that switches back and forth between the urbanity of Albuquerque and the primitive extremes of Bolivia, Gregor hitches up the tension with gun battles, academic jealousy, deceit and cryptic crossword messages. Neither sister is certain who to trust and Sara even has doubts about the attractive man assigned to protect her.

    It helps to have read the previous books in this series, though it isn’t necessary in order to follow the action.

    Fans of suspense, unique locations, science and even romance will find something to like in this novel.
