When the corpse of a young woman is found floating down Washington's C&O Canal, everyone is shocked to learn the victim is none other than Valerie Frolich—a senator's daughter, Georgetown graduate, and a rising star in the cutthroat world of investigative journalism.
Washington Post reporter Joe Potamos is good at unearthing the skeletons in the nation's capital, so when he's assigned the Frolich story, he immediately senses this case is rife with secrets. As he digs further to uncover the truth about Valerie's death, it soon becomes apparent someone wanted the young, beautiful reporter dead.
And when Joe's search uncovers an evil labyrinth of intrigue involving murder, bribery, kidnapping, and even international espionage, he'll have to race to find Valerie's killer—before his own life is snuffed out.
