No Safe Place centres on seven days in a closly contested Presidential primary, in which political violence, abortion politics and potential scandal all converge.
Kerry Kilcannon is a young senator from New Jersey, the younger brother of a murdered presidential aspirant.
Now Kerry, too, is seeking the presidency. But Kerry's past and present have begun to converge.
Unknown to him, he is being stalked by Sean Burke, an anti-abortion fanatic intent on killing him before election day. And Nate Cutler, a political reporter for a national newsmagazine is trying to establish that two years before - while still married - Kilcannon had an affair with Lara Costello, another reporter covering Kilcannonm which resulted in an abortion.
Through a narrative which weaves past and present, No Safe Place introduces the compelling character, Kerry Kilcannon, and raises questions about abortion politics, the gun culture in America, and the degree to which the press is - or should be - intent on exposing the private lives of political leaders.
On the eve of the election, those forces converge in a sensational and shocking climax.
