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.
