What started as a mischievous night of debauchery for a group of bored, local high school students has ended in a bizarre calamity, the teenagers attacked by an unidentified creature with the power to electrocute. As Maggie interviews the survivors for clues as to what really took place that terrifying night, local law-enforcement closes rank, making it clear that the seemingly harmless, rural landscape is home to some deeply buried secrets.
Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away in Virginia, Army Colonel Benjamin Platt and his colleague, Roger Bix of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are baffled by a virulent strain of bacteria felling whole high schools and elementary schools with a deadly form of food poisoning—and by the anonymous whistleblower leading them on a wild chase that lands them at a shady meat processing plant in Chicago.
The two investigations collide as a shocking web of government evasion and scientific experimentation worthy of the X-Files rises to the surface of each case. Lightning-paced and eerily prescient, Hotwire hums with intrigue, breathtaking revelations, and the trademark edge-of-your-seat storytelling that has earned Alex Kava both critical acclaim and a growing following.
