THE PROGRAMWhen New Orleans District Attorney Kirsten Lord and her nine-year-old daughter are imperiled by a chillingly believable death threat, Lord has no other choice but to accept the Witness Protection Program s offer to hide them in Boulder, Colorado. There, they meet program veteran Carl Luppo, a solitary mob hit man who is tormented by his former life and has nothing but time for regret. Sensing that Lord and her daughter s safety has been compromised, Luppo takes on the role of sentinel, fully realizing this might be his last shot at redemption. While Lord suspects that Luppo s warnings about the program s dark side are for her own protection and that she should believe the former assassin s instincts, the only person she can really trust is nine-years-old. WARNING SIGNSThe brutal slaying of Boulder s controversial DA strikes deep in the heart of everything clinical psychologist Alan Gregory holds dear: after all, Gregory s wife, Lauren, worked for the dead man. But the bloodied body is just the first in a series of high-voltage incidents in a gripping story of crime and punishment, tragedy and retribution - and of human beings caught in the shattering cross fire of forces beyond their control...forces sometimes within themselves."
