With her Masters in chemistry and physics, Elizabeth Clark is not like other young ladies anxiously awaiting marriage and babies. Being chosen as part of a science team working to end the war is an honor and a challenge she gladly accepts.
 
As a Calutron girl, Ruth Nance is excited to do her part for the war effort. With so many military men and scientists around, it could also be a great way for her and her sister Irene to find husbands.
 
Being the only woman scientist in their community does not make it easy for Libby to cultivate friendships, male or female.  Ruth becomes the exception when she takes Libby under her wing, although their time together comes to a sudden and deadly halt when Irene is murdered.  With the military and local police covering up the murder, Libby is honor-bound to her friend to find the killer.  She may lose her job, and maybe her freedom, but Libby will not stand by and let an innocent young girl’s death go unanswered.
 
Libby is a force to be reckoned with when she sets her mind to something.  Using her incredible intelligence Libby works tirelessly to help her friend Ruth.  She also shows amazing resolve, especially when it comes to facing down men who could easily have her arrested, or worse.  This story is set in one of the most volatile and changing times in our history, and it is women like Libby who are at the forefront making a difference.
