Burnout is the story of a fictional Space Shuttle disaster which turns out not to be an accident. As the principal investigators dig deeper, they discover the signs of something unusual - and as they do, friends, lovers, and colleagues involved in the investigation begin to die in mysterious “accidents.”
What happened to the Shuttle? Who is responsible and why? Why is the government calling it an accident? Why is someone willing to kill to keep it a secret? And how big is the conspiracy?
What people are saying about Burnout:
"I opened the cover...in the morning and couldn´t put it down! This intriguing maze of plot twists, danger, intrigue and excitement would make an excellent movie."
~~Ann B. Keller, author of Vortex of Revelation
"...A real page-turner...a great read...recommended."
