The Defense Criminal Investigative Service sends David Stafford on a low-profile assignment: look into an Atlanta base where someone is running a scam involving public auctions of military surplus. But when he arrives in Georgia, Stafford stumbles on a dangerous secret. Soon he realizes that problems on the base run much deeper than he thought and could threaten national security.
A cylinder of Wet Eye, a hazardous biological weapon with gruesome consequences, is missing, maybe stolen. But no one will admit it's gone. Stafford's suspicions lead him to Wendell Carson, a manager on the Atlanta base who has disturbing secrets of his own. As he hunts for answers, Stafford befriends an unusual, troubled young girl and her guardian, who live in a remote Georgia mountain town. What the girl knows about Carson and how she came by that knowledge trap Stafford between an unstable weapon with deadly power and a military bureaucracy desperate to cover its mistakes, no matter what the cost.
