Survivor of the Clan
A roar of motorcycles disturbs a peaceful congregation leaving church on an Easter Sunday outside Edinburgh Scotland. One of the motorcyclists assassinates geneticist Dr. Kyle Locke, while another abducts his daughter, Amelia, leaving a gawking crowd of worshippers. Wife and mother, Shelby Locke witnesses her entire life taken from her in one instant.
Scottish police cannot find a trace of the assailants, and Shelby’s father esteemed geneticist Dr. Ian Morehead offers little aid in the investigation. When clues arise that lead to Odessa, Ukraine, it is Shelby who steps up the search to find her daughter and her husband’s killer.
Arriving in Odessa offers more questions than answers. Confronted with the suspects, Shelby must face her own past, as a young child, and that of a mysterious woman whom she has striking memories, recollections of a precarious time in the near past. In order to save herself and her daughter, she must find the courage and compassion to face issues that plague mankind and its future, only then can Shelby and Amelia be free.
