“What do you do when the person you are trying to save has to kill you to stay alive?”

March 2019 to February 2020.

Ben Rooker and Teddy Dabrowski are middle-aged friends who meet regularly at “The Bard,” a Pasadena, California coffee shop slash bookstore until one fateful day the café is rocked by an explosion. A woman, previously unknown to Teddy, but who nonetheless had moments before muttered an obscenity at him is killed as well as several others, while Ben and Teddy suffer non-life threatening injuries.

All culminating in a race to find a young woman who may be the key to the mystery but just might have to kill them for their trouble.
