Palmer, AK, April 22, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- When the body of a young woman, covered with red welts and lying in the fetal position, is discovered in the Alaskan wilderness, it appears she is a victim of Mother Nature. But after she is found to be HIV positive, Dr. Colin Sperling feels it best to keep the case under wraps until more is known. Meanwhile medical technician Gaynor Higgins makes the shocking discovery that the dead woman is Bethany, her good friend and roommate. After two similar deaths occur, the Center for Disease Control sends special agent Jimmy Bartinelli to Alaska to investigate. Gaynor is less than impressed the first time she meets the rumpled East Coast investigator who travels everywhere with his cat. Together Gaynor and Jimmy work to find the cause of the mysterious deaths. Could this be the beginning of a widespread epidemic? Is there more than meets the eye in this close-knit Alaskan community?
