Baker & Taylor
Disabled Florida P.I. Fred Carver faces the most painful case of his career when his lover is injured in a bomb blast that kills two abortion clinic workers, and Carver must discover whether the bomb was the work of a religious zealot or a personal vendetta

Blackwell North Amer
When Florida PI Fred Carver and his lover, Beth, decide to keep their unborn child, Beth insists she stop by the abortion clinic in person to cancel her appointment. While Beth runs inside, Carver waits across the street in the car, watching pro-life demonstrators picket the building. He admires Beth's courage as she saunters past them. Moments later, Carver's affectionate gaze turns to one of horror as the building explodes and Beth is blown back out onto the pavement. A doctor and patient are killed, several people are injured, and, ironically, Beth loses the child she and Carver had planned to keep.
Within twenty-four hours, the local police think they've got the case all wrapped up. Detonators and bombmaking manuals are found at the home of Adam Norton, a religious fanatic spotted at the crime site. But Carver isn't convinced of Norton's guilt.
Motivated by overwhelming sadness for his loss, Carver begins to dig deeper. When he and Beth start to receive violent threats, even after Norton has been locked up under suspicion, and when a sharply dressed, sinister man invades their lives, Carver knows he's on to something. That something leads him headlong down a twisted path of possibilities and into more danger than he bargained for.
