The Pain Colony
by Shanon Hunt
They’re desperate to flush out the lie. But the price of uncovering the truth could be worse than death.
DEA Special Agent Peter Malloy is no stranger to the devastating impact of drugs. So when six bodies turn up with surgical ports in their spines, he’s sure a potent new opioid is the culprit. But when lab tests show zero evidence of any known narcotics, he fears something far more sinister.
Allison Stevens thought she knew everything about her boss. But after he turns fugitive to flee federal charges, she’s stunned to discover his secret genetic research in pain tolerance. Although the FBI watches her every move, she’s obsessed with finding what else he’s hiding.
Their search for answers leads them to a dark, disturbing cult, where true believers seem perilously addicted to suffering, devoted to becoming Pure.
Will Malloy and Stevens unravel this secret in time to stop the atrocities?
