Thriller Police Procedural | Romance Suspense

Erin Pulaski teaches ballet for fun, but her real job is as a private investigator. And if she isn't careful, her latest job may get Erin arrested for breaking and entering. Her client, Professor Kender, has asked Erin to look into why the production of the drug Culovort has stopped, forcing colon cancer patients to use Eloxium, an expensive drug not covered by insurance. The night after Erin's reluctant criminal activity, a body is found in the same park Erin ran through the night before, involving the FBI. She has to play her cards right when the FBI Agent in charge of the murder case, Bowie Richards, arrives at her door asking a favor for his daughter, a ballet student. Erin decides she may be able to gain more information on her own case by helping the agent out. As a personal favor to a friend, Special Agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are checking on a strange occurrence happening at the residence of Senator Hoffman. The Senator, seeing a white apparatus floating outside his bedroom window, is unsure what to do but needs full discretion. Savich is known for having experience with unnatural events, but before he can apply his knowledge, Savich is sent to Stone Bridge to assist Agent Bowie Richards on a murder. As the murder case progresses, the FBI finds a connection to a certain drug company located near the park where the body is found. None of the agents believe the recent break-in is a coincidence and push to investigate, leading one agent to a personal betrayal. WHIPLASH has an electrifying plot with enough twists and turns to form a complete page-turner. This FBI thriller series continues to intrigue on all levels.

SUMMARY

Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender's father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug company's disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove there is something more sinister going on at Schiffer Engel's manufacturing facility in Indiana. Pulaski uncovers a bombshell-Schiffer Engel's intentional shortage is bringing in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. When a top Schiffer Engel employee shows up viciously murdered behind the U.S. headquarters, Sherlock and Savich are called in to lend a hand. The murder of a foreign national on federal land can only mean the German drug company has a secret of epic proportions.
