The victimsMoreIn 1954 Baltimore, Sean Reilly, the detective from DEATH IS THE COOL NIGHT, investigates the murder of a Johns Hopkins researcher, a quiet, well-liked man whose true identity turns out to be just as much a mystery as that of his killer. The victims death appears linked to the polio vaccine trials about to begin across the country.A widower now, Detective Reilly struggles to stay focused on the case while being pulled in different directions--by his young sons fears and needs, by his own desire for love and stability, and by his inability to get beyond his grief for his beloved wife. When a Hopkins secretary, herself a polio victim, feeds him information on the case, he begins to fall for her...as he also wonders if she played a part in the murder.LOST TO THE WORLD captures a moment in time when the world waited for the summer plague -- that had afflicted thousands of children and adults, including the late president -- to be wiped out once and for all.
