Dr. Ingrid Seastrom was once a respected American physician. Whispr, whose body has been transformed to preternatural thinness, was once a streetwise thief. Now, in a world on the edge of catastrophe from centuries of environmental exploitation, they are alliesthrust together by fate to unravel an impossible mysteryeven as they are stalked by a relentless killer.

Their quest to learn its secretsand, in Whisprs case, sell them to the highest bidderhas brought them to South Africas treacherous Namib desert. Beyond its dangers waits a heavily guarded research facility that promises answers, if they can survive long enough to get there. But that wont be easy, not with Napun Mol on their trail. Theyve already escaped the assassin twice, and as far as Mol is concerned, finishing them off isnt just a job anymore . . . its personal.
