T Wave by Steve Freeman
When FBI Forensic Accountant Mallory Wilson is called to investigate the potential theft of narcotics from a local medical group, the routine case takes a sinister turn as she and boyfriend Alton Blackwell uncover a series of questionable patient deaths.
Alton and Mallory race to get to the bottom of the ominous events, applying their skills as never before while the plans of murderous drug dealers, cheating spouses, and profit-minded hospital administrators collide with unexpected consequences. When the investigators themselves come under attack, the case takes on even greater urgency. To protect themselves and prevent further bloodshed, Alton and Mallory must follow a trail of perplexing clues to uncover the malevolent secrets behind the medical facility’s sterile walls. The solution that awaits them, however, defies their wildest expectations.
As they attempt to solve the baffling case, their struggle to maintain a long-distance relationship faces a new challenge as Alton is forced to relocate to a new, out-of-state office.
A fast-paced mystery, T WAVE serves up a roller-coaster ride of unexpected twists with a side of romance.
In T Wave, volume three of "The Blackwell Files" series, FBI agent Mallory Wilson begins investigating the potential theft of narcotics at a local hospice, but the case quickly escalates as she and boyfriend Alton Blackwell uncover a series of questionable patient deaths. Can they unravel the mystery in time to stop a potential killer, and will their relationship survive Alton's relocation to a new office?
Alton passed through the building’s automatic doors and into the warm humidity of the summer evening. He headed into the parking lot, an expanse of asphalt bordered by a sidewalk, beyond which lay a dense grove of trees. On previous visits to the building, he had often observed squirrels darting through the underbrush, but the parking lot’s faux-antique streetlamps couldn't begin to illuminate the interior of the dark copse now.
As he walked down the sidewalk towards his Explorer, Alton ruminated over the curious series of events. The evening’s investigation had only strengthened his inclination to believe them to be more than a result of chance.
With no distractions beyond the soothing symphony of crickets, Alton seemed to think more clearly in the moist night air than he had in the cramped office. He slowed his pace as the outline of a pattern began to penetrate his thoughts. His mind was on the cusp of forming a connection, of recognizing a common attribute shared by all instances of the cases he was investigating. The noise of squirrels rustling underneath the trees proved a momentary distraction, but he quickly resumed his attempt to identify the solution which lay, tantalizingly, just out of reach.
As Alton struggled to complete the intuitive leap, a blur of motion appeared at the periphery of his vision. His world exploded into a thousand bright lights, then turned utterly dark.
