Book Description


Pocket: NY 1993 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

The fourth entry in the Tom Bethany series finds the Boston PI confronting both personal and professional crises. His longtime lover, Washington ACLU lawyer Hope Edwards, is pregnant and has decided on an abortion. While she's undergoing the procedure at a Virginia abortion clinic, the facility is attacked by antiabortion "Life Forcers" led by televangelist Howard Orrin. The melee is televised, Hope becomes the focal point of Life Force harassment, and a young girl whom Tom befriended at the clinic is so traumatized by the Forcers that she commits suicide. With his sense of justice wounded by the death of the youngster and his protective instincts roused by the attacks on Hope, Tom swings into action. Aided by a high-school friend of the suicide victim, Tom hatches an elaborate scheme to bring down Orrin and his empire. Bethany's liberal political beliefs are very much a part of the action here and in the other series entries. For those in sympathy with this point of view, he makes a great hero. Another strong entry in an excellent, underappreciated series.
