Cover-1Abandoned by his father, orphaned by his drug-addled mother, and devastated by the murder of his sister, Michael McKeon was once a hardened “street dog who learned to play in traffic.” Years later, Michael, now a Bowdoin College professor of microbiology with a wife and adopted daughter, creates a microbe that instantly cleans up any oil spill, no matter how large, by devouring the oil.

With help from friends, family, and her yoga practice, Alexa Williams is finally starting to recover from last autumn’s trauma of finding a dead body and the violence that ensued.
