Defending Wellton by Kelli Kretzschmar

DefendingWellton5“Yesterday morning we had two more patients come in showing the same symptoms – stomach pains, high fever – both were kids. And within six hours, they were dead too.”

Something – or someone – is killing the kids in Wellton, Arizona. And although Officer Trent Buckley can’t wait to be transferred out of the forgotten desert town, suddenly he finds himself working the biggest case of his career, one that brings him back in touch with reporter and ex-lover, Sarah Goodwin.

Trent and his mentor Chief Walker race the clock to prevent more deaths and to keep the media from causing a panic, all while battling personal demons they both thought were in the past.

When they finally discover what’s happening in Wellton, will two small-town cops be enough to put an end to it?
