Publisher's Summary

Dee Henderson is one of today's most popular inspirational novelists. She fills each work with tightly woven suspense and touching struggles of faith. Henderson has received many awards, including the RITA, National Reader's Choice Award, and Bookseller's Best Award. The Guardian is a Christy Award winner. Just before he is nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court, a controversial judge is murdered. His speechwriter, Shari Hanford, surprises the assassin in the act and sees his face before he flees. Now U.S. Marshal Marcus O'Malley is assigned to protect Shari while police conduct a widespread manhunt.
As O'Malley draws close to the beautiful young woman, both know she is the target of someone who will stop at nothing to eliminate her. This challenge demands all O'Malley's resources, and it will also force him to examine his faith and his heart. Narrator Tom Stechschulte provides a moving performance, highlighting each spiritual conflict and conviction.

Excellent story and narration.

I love all of Dee Henderson's books. Tom Stechschulte is a great narrator. I love the storyline of the O'Malley family. This book is full of suspense, mystery, sadness, happiness, and love. Thank you Dee Henderson for keeping your books free from profanity and sex.

Great Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This story kept my attention from the start to the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the characters in the book were wonderful but my favorites would be Marcus and Shari. Marcus trying to keep Shari alive from a hit man was great. The fact that the two fall in love and that Marcus found God made the book exceptional.

What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

Tom Stechsculte narrated the book great. The characters were very distinguished.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

With the busy life I live, it is hard to sit and relax with a book, but this book I did just that. I would wake at night and listen to it until it was finished.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to everyone I know, but especially those that struggle with Jesus not helping them when they thought he should.
