She found the fossils out in the sun-baked Tonopah desert, along with more trouble than shead ever dreamed of . . . . If Melissa Lewis had known that she and her three high school students were trespassing in a restricted military zone, theyad have left before they ever stumbled across the fossilized bones.

Through it all, one thing becomes abundantly clear. Someone will do anything to gain possession of Melissa's fossils. Between Melissa and a hit man's bullet stands only her faith . . . and one courageous marine. But can he protect her from circumstances deadlier than the brutal Nevada desert?
