Publisher's Summary

Parked near an abortion clinic, Fred Carver, Florida P.I., watches his girlfriend Beth with admiration as she walks toward the building to cancel her appointment. They've agreed to keep their unborn child, even though it presents unique struggles. Suddenly, the clinic explodes, hurling Beth backwards. A doctor and a patient die, several are injured. Beth loses the baby. Police arrest a religious zealot, but Carver has doubts. When someone starts threatening him and Beth, and a strange, slick man invades their lives, Carver senses revenge, not religion, was behind the blast. His search for the truth leads him down a deadly path, and more than he bargained for.


What the Critics Say

"Veteran novelist Lutz ties some nifty twists into his plot, which moves quickly towards a final deadly confrontation." (Publishers Weekly)
"Here Carver's almost inchoate ruminations about the fanaticism of anti-abortion zealots are especially well done, and fans of the balding, disabled detective won't be disappointed." (Booklist)
"Carver's tenth outing is deft, evenhanded, and more deeply felt than his last few, though most of the mystery's left till the very end." (Kirkus Reviews)
