June 2013. As the New York City suffers under a blistering early summer heat wave, a wily fanatic who believes he is taking commands from God targets abortion doctors. Det. Antonio Guardini, a 20-year veteran of the NYPD, committed family man, devout Catholic and prolife activist, finds himself in a moral dilemma when he is assigned to a task force whose job is to investigate the murders and find the killer. Guardini and the six other detectives in the task force find themselves up against a cunning executioner who leaves not even the slightest piece of evidence behind. Although he doesn't sympathize with the victims, Guardini knows that what the killer, dubbed the "Abortion Avenger" by the press, is doing is wrong and he must be stopped at all costs. With most of his days and nights devoted to bringing the Abortion Avenger to justice, Guardini's family life begins to suffer. The sweltering summer trudges on and the bodies pile up. All the while Guardini is closer to the Abortion Avenger than he ever could have imagined.
