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.

    Story
    "Didn't want it to end!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Guardian to be better than the print version?

    First book I have read of Dee Henderson and LOVED IT. Loved the Narrator Tom also!
    Back to look for more by this Author and Narrator!


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes you feel like you are there and part of the lives of the charactors.

    "great story"
    Would you listen to The Guardian again? Why?

    The reading was very good and a great story. I'm even listening to it again since I'm sure I missed some of the story the first time around

    Story
    "Good reader, predictable plot"

    I liked this book as a bit of escapism, but it really isn't very deep. It was a good story and the set up of the O'Mallys is creative, 7 adoptive siblings, each with his/her own unique problems to be dealt with. It just isn't my schtick. I found it too unrealistic in parts, and pretty predictable in others. Although I'm not unhappy that I read it, I most likely will not purchase the rest of the series.

    "A good story line"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if I were reading and not listening it would be hard to put down.


    What other book might you compare The Guardian to and why?

    A good who done it, or rather why


    What aspect of Tom Stechschulte’s performance would you have changed?

    The female parts. His voice as a female was irritating

    "Another Wonderful Book in the O'Malley Series!!"

    I love the O'Malleys. These books make you want to be part of this amazing family.
    I have read the entire series, but hearing the audio book brings them to life.

    This is a wonderful story.

    "Thriller with religion"

    The story line is good. However, unless you like mild sexual undertones and huge religious overtones, don't bother.
