“I exhale into the water, watching for bubbles. Follow the bubbles, I tell myself. The bubbles don’t lie. The bubbles are life.
The water is growing warmer against my skin. Am I nearing the surface? It’s continuing to heat up, painfully so. My hand breaks the surface, and I pull myself upward. I’m joyous that I’ve left the water behind and can breathe freely… that is until I realize the heat comes from the ring of flames around me, floating like Hell on the shifting waves.”
Still recovering from near death experience Sonia is determined to move her small family to safety. Under duress from the CIA, she agrees to leave her family under CIA Protection and journey to an unusual US instillation, an underground salt mine, recently built to train first responders to combat and respond to terrorism. Life in the underground mine is bleak and depressing, but Sonia focuses on her work until she’s attacked by the very people she is assigned to protect.
A continuing story of love, survival, vulnerability and grit from USA Today and WSJ best selling author, Judith Lucci.
