The Blue Place

On an April night in Atlanta, between thunderstorms, out walking just to stay sharp, Aud turns a corner and collides with a running woman. Catching the scent of clean, rain-soaked hair, Aud nods, thinks, Today, you are lucky, and moves on--and behind her a house explodes in a tiger-lily of flame.

When Aud turns back, the woman is gone.

But the woman returns, seeking Aud's help and protection from a deadly international game of forgery, drugs, money and murder.
