In a heartbeat, a crowded auditorium or a city street can become a kill zone, where life and death are separated by a split second. For Atticus Kodiak, professional bodyguard, the object is to keep his clients alive, and there is no margin for error. Now Kodiak is guarding a woman caught in the center of America's most passionate life-and-death drama.The letters are neatly typed and the message is brutally clear: Hell is waiting for you. I'll send you there myself... Dr. Felice Romero, administrator of the Women's LifeCare Clinic, has a thick file of such anonymous notes. But with the approach of the Common Ground Conference, designed to forge a compromise between pro-choice and pro-life groups and end violent protest, the threats have escalated in number and ugliness. With the stakes rising, Dr. Romero hires bodyguard Atticus Kodiak and his team of security specialists to protect her and her daughter, Katie.Atticus has personal reasons for agreeing to take on Felice Romero as a client. But even as he defends the doctor's right to speak, he knows that protecting her at the conference will be a logistical nightmare. Soon it's no longer a question of keeping her safe during her time behind the podium. As death stalks Dr. Romero, her daughter, Atticus, and his security team, it's clear the trick will be to keep them all alive until the conference begins.
