Three days before Christmas, 2000, and FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd’s in Warsaw, bodyguarding a key female witness in the trial of ruthless but runty crime boss Mike the Midget.

Will Basia make it safely in and out of court? Or will the only thing under her Christmas tree be an extra-large coffin?
