Break Bone Fever

A Finnerty and Liccione Mystery

Mary L. Rae, M.D. and Wanda J. Venters, M.D.

Dr. Louise Finnerty and Dr. Marnie Liccione plunge into the murder investigation of their friend, but can they solve it before it's too late?

On a warm fall night, Dr. Gennifer Drake’s body washes up on a foggy beach in Galveston, Texas. Shocked by their friend’s death, Dr. Louise Finnerty, an emergency medicine physician and Dr. Marnie Liccione, a recently widowed pediatrician, plunge into the murder investigation of their friend and classmate. Dr. Drake had been researching a deadly new form of dengue fever at the ultra-high security Galveston National Laboratory. Aided by climate change, this mosquito borne illness, known as Break Bone Fever, is spreading northward and threatening the United States.

With the help of investigative reporter and an unconventional police detective, they confront the growing movement of Q-Anon conspiracists and untangle the web of lies being propagated by a cabal inside the Environmental Protection Agency. As time runs out to stop the pandemic, they face a fight not just for justice, but for their lives.
