Description

It's Christmas Eve in Santa Fe. But among the revelers on Canyon Road, a decidedly unholy scene is taking place. A desperate man, dressed all in black, feverishly seeks refuge for himself and the squirming bundle he holds tightly against his breast. Agent Paul Kagan¿s bundle is a baby who has the power to change the course of global events. His pursuers are his former colleagues¿members of the Russian mafia who will stop at nothing to accomplish their mission. Now Kagan is a spy on the run¿he must ensure this baby¿s survival, even if it will cost him his own life.

Just a short distance away, Kagan will find an unexpected pair of allies¿a mother and her young son, who huddle together after a horrible episode of domestic violence leaves them home alone, with no means of transportation.

And so, with the exquisitely honed skills of his profession and the help and good faith of a weary woman and a disillusioned boy, Kagan must take on forces that will stop at nothing. In the course of a wild and violent night, the unlikely trio learns lessons of generosity, courage, and selflessness, discovering within themselves the luminous strength of the true Christmas spirit.
