The Shadow Savior: A Novel by Shawn J. Higgins

Virgil “Doc” Heater has just left his San Diego medical practice with plans for a day at the beach. When he perceives the child in the vehicle next to him is a kidnap victim, however, Doc follows the vehicle to determine the driver’s intention. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, deputy district attorney Debra Gallagher, is struck by a powerful premonition, and leaps into action to thwart what she believes will become a cataclysmic event.

Doc learns from the radio that he is following a recently-released sexual predator who has indeed kidnapped the child. Debra, armed with a .45-caliber pistol, follows her intuition out on the road and encounters Doc, unaware that he has been trailing the suspected vehicle. For a very brief moment in time that produces actions destined to linger for decades, the four people become weaved into a web of suspense in which the outcome is uncertain but one thing is clear: a child’s life hangs in the balance.

A short novel written from a stream-of-consciousness perspective and set in real-time, you will never forget this unusual story and the people involved.Image
