No Safe Place Publisher's Summary

In his first audiobook since the national best seller Silent Witness, Richard North Patterson gives us an extraordinary novel of presidential politics. Senator Kerry Kilcannon's insurgent campaign against Vice President Dick Mason has come down to the last seven days. Whoever wins the California presidential primary is likely to win the Democratic nomination. And for all the votes his passions and magnetism have gained him, Kerry's problems are formidable. Kerry is haunted by the tragedy of his older brother, a presidential candidate who was assassinated in California twelve years earlier. Kerry has stumbled in his advocacy of abortion rights, and a right-to-life fanatic has pushed this explosive issue to the forefront by murdering three people at a women's clinic. In addition, a journalist is striving to verify the story that while still married, Kerry had an affair with a reporter. And now, ever more threatening, Kerry is being stalked by the abortion-clinic murderer himself. With rare authenticity, Richard North Patterson depicts the world of high-stakes presidential politics that will hold the listener enthralled from the first to the last sentence.
