She’s in over her head.
Miss Jahzara Jones. Fantasizing an interview with Barack Obama. Crashing her
two-bit English prof’s inquisition into the who, the why and the wherefore of
the untimely gutting of my research lab. Falling for no less than suspect numero
uno, my over-the-top associate. And she caps it all by dragging the CIA and
National Security onto campus. Searchlights. Helicopters. The works. So? She
turns me down. Am I sore? No matter which way, I’m ahead. While the feds get on
with their dirty work, I make money hand over fist, land obscene contracts, as
well as Candy, our Miss Quill, who’ll do just about anything that obeys the laws
of physics for a guy with a real brain. Think I’m kidding? As for our charming
Jahzara Jones, she’s in over her head. Way in. This is Professor Darian Marchant
and I approve this message.
A young Turkish scientist is suspected of blowing up his professor’s laboratory. The event seems linked with a missing Chinese student, a former Guantanamo detainee, and a possible attempt to assassinate Barack Obama. In unraveling the mystery, reporter Jahzara Jones finds her sanity, her career, and her life on the line. (Two acts, 114 pages)
