Allison Constantine thought that she had the perfect man when she married David twelve years ago. He was ambitious, handsome, and on the rise in his career. But, the honeymoon is about to end. When the head of the company Genesis suddenly goes crazy, kills his family, and apparently commits suicide, David is made the new CEO. These are the first of a long line of mysterious deaths. Suddenly, Allie finds herself questioning some of her husband's actions, as well as the actions of the other board members in the "brotherhood" at Genesis. Allie suspects that she’s being followed, but by whom? A rival firm? A group protesting Genesis' experiments? Or the former Genesis president?
As Allie digs deeper, she discovers more disturbing things about the company and her husband. People around her start to meet with fatal accidents. Can she risk her own life and the lives of her children to bring the guilty to justice?

Full of intrigue and nail-biting action, Black Flowers will not disappoint. Ms. Watkins has penned fascinating and well-rounded characters. Allie is a total mother hen. She will do whatever it takes to keep her children safe, risking even her own life to protect them. Allie discovers character that she didn't know she possessed, as well as strength that her husband didn't know she had. David is a character you will love to hate; he is truly evil.
