Mad Max hopes her vacation with her grandson in New Mexico will be educational and relaxing. When her grandson breaks his leg on the first day, he is airlifted to a state-of-the-art Indian Health Services hospital for emergency treatment. Two days into his recovery, he falls ill from an unknown illness. Several children from the outlying community contract similar diseases. After some die, Mad Max thinks someone is deliberately infecting them with an unknown illness. Or illnesses, since symptoms do not point to a single diagnosis.
Unsafe Haven exploits every parent's or grandparent's biggest fear: how do I protect my family? Mad Max puts together clues with a large cast of characters to identify and stop the perpetrator before he can kill her grandson.
