About this product
- DescriptionString of the Scorpion is the story of a young woman's perilous struggle to pierce a governmental wall of silence, overcome her tormentors, and save her life. Kristina Anderson, a young woman in Sweden, has been accepted to study medicine at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Her student visa is denied because she is a security threat to the United States. To her that's ludicrous. Homeland Security won't tell her why. A handsome young American naval attache warns her of a rumor that someone wants her dead. Who? That seems even more ludicrous. Her determination to solve these mysteries and save her life is too seductive to be checked by fear. Her chilling search sweeps across three continents. She encounters a priest who has abandoned his vocation; an Arabian prince who deserves a gold medal for womanizing; a mysterious woman who is the doyenne of a Spanish ble family whose roots and behavior date back to the Dark Ages; a mediary of uncertain origins and even more uncertain loyalties; and a former NIS agent who kws which skeletons are in whose closets. Whom can she trust? Her life depends on making the right choices.
