ASHES ASHES – Ring around a rosie … Leah desperately flees her past as a member of a gang and takes up youth work at a church in inner city Phoenix, Arizona. But when a coworker disappears and her brother dies of mysterious causes, Leah finds herself searching for answers in her past. More lives are claimed, and each victim sports classic signs of a deadly virus—an aggressive form of yersinia pestis, otherwise known as the Bubonic plague.

In spite of the danger, Leah must confront the one person she fears most and unravel the mysterious rhyme in order to save her life and the lives of those she loves most.
