Begin with one freelance journalist hellbent on getting her story. Add one charismatic and internationally renowned genetic engineer who claims to have developed the first viable AIDS vaccine. Mix in a stormy love affair which colors their mutual past, and you have the opening gambits of the fast-paced political thriller June Mail. When Sarah Calloway arrives in California for her exclusive interview with the celebrated Dr. Winslow, she finds that the geneticist has disappeared without a trace. His disappearance is made doubly mysterious by the fact that she had received a wire from the man only two days before, setting up the California interview and dropping no hint of an impending move. As Sarah proceeds to track down the missing geneticist, an elusive but threatening presence appears to be tracking her down. Who? And why?
