Book Description:
Chicago’s Women’s Health Clinic Explodes. Emily Winter’s Exclusive Report Tonight!
​In the summer of 1977, Chicago’s WSMP-TV investigative reporter Emily Winter covers the confrontation between a woman’s health clinic fighting to preserve a woman’s right to choose and the equally ardent demonstrators fighting against that right.
Before Emily can explore the depths of this battle, the clinic is violently attacked and a beloved clinic staff member is killed.
While there is no lack of suspects—anti-abortion proponents, a wealthy patron of that movement, a scruffy real estate speculator, a disgruntled clinic employee—there are few tangible clues and none of the suspects will cooperate with the investigation.
But all this pales when Emily, her husband Benjamin and their crusty Uncle Max face alarming sniper attacks.
Under that threat and protected by a spirited young and devoted woman bodyguard, Emily uses her ingenuity and her determined desire to get the story and get it right until she tears down the stone wall and brings the truth to light.
