What happens when abusive parents raise brilliant children? You might get a saint. You might get a killer. Or you might get one of each.Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister's brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. Eva survived by finding refuge from madness in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is on her way to becoming the world's richest woman... and the most dangerous.Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. The early death of her mother and her father's incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta's refuge? A tropical rainforest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties.The two girls meet in high school and form an uneasy friendship that lasts through college. Eva wants power, profit - and Marta's husband. She offers to fund Marta's public health dreams in exchange for the ailing physician's knowledge of plant-based medicines. Together, they build NMech, which becomes the world's largest nanotech manufacturer.When the unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on NMech for survival, only Marta can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But Marta is a healer, not a fighter, and must rely on her husband and teenaged son, a boy who faces a life-or-death challenge well beyond his years.Little Deadly Things is the place where science meets the psyche, where the world's fate rests in the hands of a madwoman and in the lives of the family that must stop her.
