Deliberate Malice

During her ten years as Director of Nursing at the health department in Parkdale, Missouri, Lacey Bookman thinks she has seen everything. That is until several cases of polio affecting children pop up in her community.

Her nightmare begins with nerve-shattering swiftness the moment the case reports hit her desk. There hasn’t been a case of Type I Poliomyelitis reported in the United States since 1979. Now, not only has the eradicated disease mysteriously reappeared, it attacks children who are up-to-date on their polio immunizations.

While the Centers for Disease Control is on red alert, Lacey and her three nurses’ dives into an investigation. When the number of cases increase, officials close the schools causing more panic in her town. Lacey tries to keep the community calm and informed while she plays a ‘beat-the-clock’ game with the monster illness.

Too busy to dwell on random threats she’s getting, Lacey tries to dismiss them as pranks. However, when they fall into a sinister pattern, she realizes this isn’t just about an outbreak. It’s personal.
