On the piers of Neo-Chicago’s Chinatown district, an underwater explosion rocks the night. The NCPD’s media-blackout forces locals to take to the net to report and speculate on the event, but one woman alone is set to learn the truth. Kennedy Hart, a nurse in Neo-Chicago’s Rush Medical ICU, arrives to find two burn-victims misdirected to her unit. What she learns soon after will have her fearing for more than her job…

From an action-packed SWAT raid, to a high-speed street pursuit, follow Kennedy as she pursues the truth behind the bombing, her new patients, and the governmental forces holding her job hostage. Will she keep to the terms of their clandestine deal, or will the forces they seek to thwart overwhelm them both? Find out, here, starting next week!

She rounded for the hall and into a man in a suit cut so sharp it made her eyes bleed. She was stunned. He pulled out a bi-fold wallet, flashed a badge that vaguely registered as FBI; “Misses Hart?”

“Miss,” she corrected habitually. “Yes? Can I help you?”

“Miss Hart, would you come with me please?”

Kennedy glanced at the two nurses whom stared, open-mouthed at their computers. She cleared her throat, stammered out a reply, then followed with a curious amble. He directed her into a room with other suited men and women, extended a hand to a offer her a seat, and the room sat together.

A man at the head of table watched her for a long moment. Then, with a lean, he interlocked his fingers on the table, “Everything you’re about to hear is a matter of national security, should any of this be repeated outside this room, you will be jailed and tried for high-treason. Do you understand?”

Kennedy stared.
