As a world renowned virologist Dr. Dawson Curgalff ( one of the winners of the coveted Conway Awards ) finds herself on the fringe of a life overwhelmed. In addition to searching the world for the animal hosts of zoonotic lethal viruses she has steadily collected war orphans and extracted them from combat zones. Unknown to her public admirers she is also a formidable opponent on the battle field. After a lifetime of struggling to rescue war orphans from the clutches of insurgent generals she has accumulated enemies and left a long trail of rotting corpses. In certain circles the mere mention of her name brings on a certainty of fear. She hasn't survived by just getting through experiences. She has survived by damaging those who have opposed her without conscience or remorse. The Conway Award was supposed to provide extreme funding for people who were brilliant enough to stop the extinction of mankind. She hadn't done that and knew her efforts had been fought to a standstill. On her way to receive more money from the Conway Foundation she learns that the first love of her life, Bradford Ramsden was recently shot. After the award dinner in New York Mr. Conway asks her to go an identify the body which is being held in a morgue in Newark. Ramsden had disappeared suddenly from her life, and the world, just after getting his award over thirty years ago. She is accompanied on this quest by Liam Stephens, her fellow award winner who also had also been friends with Ramsden decades ago. When they see the body they both realize that it is not Brad but a body double. Agreeing to identify the corpse as Brad they begin to investigate why there is a body double. Apparently Ramsden had created a decades long, deep cover identity. Shortly thereafter events begin to spiral dramatically out of control. Liam Stephens is killed. Shot right through the head by the same caliber bullet that killed Brad.
