High Jinks in High Places
Jordan Anderson, a local self-employed PI, agrees to look into some strange things going on at the Arlington, Virginia warehouse of the Kingman Corporation. She soon finds herself working with George Kilburn, an investigator for a prominent senator, who is also investigating the Kingman Corporation on behalf of a senate oversight committee. It turns out that the two had recently met socially.
The investigation begins when it is learned that a shipment of navy cargo that was being sent to the naval base in Seattle, Washington, mysteriously turns up in Afghanistan.
Their investigation leads them to espionage and theft of a new highly classified advanced early warning system designed for naval ships that was being sent to Seattle for a trial run. They also discover that a disbursement officer, who was thought to have died from a massive heart attack, was actually murdered by means of a rare poison; paving the way for the theft to be carried out. As the search for answers continues, George finds himself in route to Afghanistan, not knowing who or what awaits him. Each piece of evidence that is discovered raises additional questions and as their involvement in the case deepens, so do the feelings that Jordan and George have for each other.
