When Hollis Freemont arrives in Paris to begin her job at the American consulate, she must face the tragic memories of her parents' assassination by a sniper 15 years earlier. Hollis, now a beautiful young woman, attracts the attention of Paul McGann, deputy chief of mission, whose ardent attention to Hollis is matched only by his violent temper. Hollis' involvement with McGann brings her into the sights of clandestine paragovernmental alliances and a hired assassin - the Handyman. As she struggles to elude the Handyman and his colleagues, she realizes she can trust no one, not even those closest to her. From the opening scene in an assassin's hideout to the stomach-churning climax at the Statue of Liberty,
Gatekeeper is electrifying.
