(From the publisher):
Paul Benjamin is just like you - if you live in a city. His home is a roomy old apartment on New York's upper West Side. He's lived in the city all his life and doesn't like commuting. He's an accountant, married with one grown-up daughter.
Suddenly the quiet, even routine of Paul's life is shattered beyond repair. Crime crosses his own threshold, leaving his wife dead and his daughter beaten into catatonia.
What do you do when your life lies in ruins and fear clutches at your heart? Do you shun the city and flee from its violence? Or do you do what Paul did - get a gun, learn to use it and start fighting back?
