About the Book

A deranged war vet. A poisoned community. A conspiracy with far-reaching implications. Karen Randau pits Rita Avery against lethal forces determined to keep her from discovering how Cliff and their entire community fall ill from an unidentified pathogen in Deadly Payload: Book Four of the Rim Country Mystery series.

Dead birds rain down as Rita, her daughter-in-law, and her granddaughter arrive at the park for a picnic. An unhinged war vet with a severe case of PTSD jumps into Rita’s car raging about a
walled in park, being found, and not drinking the water. Rita hurries home, finds her gravely-ill husband and son, and calls for an ambulance. None is available because hundreds of townspeople are sick.

As her family nears death, Rita races to find the pathogen and how it was spread. She
discovers that the attack on her peaceful town was practice for a national strike ... and she
must stop it before it’s too late.

Murder and partnering with a homeless war vet named Crazy Mary — this isn't how Rita
planned her family's visit!
