RECIPIENT of LiFE AWARD (Literature for Environment)Reese Summers was a small town reporter, that is, until her writing talents were noticed by a Savannah editor. She was quickly offered a job at the Savannah Daily as an investigative reporter. It wasn't long before she was assigned to start snooping around the Drakos Shipping Company.
Viktor Drakos had long been at odds with the newspaper and its editor over his company's safety record and wasn't happy with her probing into his business. Now, Reese was getting close to discovering a secret that the shipping magnate didn't want to come to light. In order to prevent her from uncovering his secret, he offered her twice her news salary to become his company's Public Affairs Officer. Shortly after accepting his offer, she begins to learn that the company is entangled in an international conspiracy and that knowledge threatens to place her life in jeopardy.
