Dr. Abby Stewart was all too familiar with this statistic. Her best friend Laura had died tragically and her own daughter Jenna had also met with an unexpectedly early end. And Abby was becoming convinced there was nothing accidental about it. For she, Laura, Jenna, and Laura's daughter Greer all shared a very special secret- one which might have been the death of Laura and Jenna, one which could place Abby and Green in terrible peril.
