After his wife dies, Gary Waldman, a former tennis coach, finds stability working for the rule-bound Transportation Security Administration in upstate New York. Structure is just what he needs as he struggles to remain a good father to his six-year-old son. Unfortunately, his life turns upside down after he uses CPR to bring a passenger back from the dead.
The publisher describes it as “part airport thriller, part family drama, part love story, In Security explores how those who strive to protect us are often unable to protect themselves. Can someone who does security work ever feel truly safe?”
