Wannabe moms at risk of their pregnancies ending too early will do almost anything to stop preterm labor. FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd won’t allow a shady medical equipment manufacturer to profit from their dedication.
In this month’s ebook release, FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd works undercover as a new sales rep for the manufacturer.
The company’s premier infusion pump tested safe for home care of asthma patients. Not for women with histories of preterm labor. Though anecdotal evidence suggests it may help them.
Dawna has more anecdotes. About wannabe moms whose hearts are damaged forever by the infusions.
She fakes a passion for selling. Closes in on the smooth-talker who gulls unwitting staff into marketing the device illegally. A profit-driven practice that fails to warn pregnant woman they’re risking their own lives.
Dawna has only one more training session to catch the company’s wily marketing czar. But her cover is wearing thin.
Can she outsmart her prime suspect?
Or should she try to out-dumb him?
You’ll find the answer in a suspenseful tale about moms, big pharma, and the FBI, all happening under wintry sunshine in Dallas, Texas.
