Death was her strongest opponent... Dana Sloan dismissed the threatening letters as the work of a prankster. After three years as Denver's mayor, she had come to view harassment as an expected but unpleasant aspect of her life as a public figure. Now that she had declared her candidacy for governor, she was an even more desirable target. Dana admitted that her life might be in danger, however, when a grenade exploded in her car. Thanks to the quick actions of Lieutenant William Madigan, she escaped unharmed. The ruggedly handsome police officer had been entrusted with the mayor's safety, and he was determined to stop the assailants--before they stopped Dana.
