A mild-mannered doctor hates violence until her family is gunned down during the most deadly school shooting ever, which drives her way beyond the edge to devise her own unique solution to eradicate what she deems the problem’s cause to be.

Drastic Measures is a hard-hitting suspense thriller covering the span of one tumultuous week in the life of a young mom who has had enough of living with the fear that she and her family can be shot on sight anywhere—at any moment.

She’s a mild-mannered mother and wife—until her husband and their only child are gunned down among the 1,000+ casualties of history's most deadly school shooting massacre. This devastating incident sends her on a mission to convince the NGA (National Gun Association)—the pre-eminent pro-gun lobbying organization—to advocate the total eradication of firearms. But she soon realizes that until NGA officials come face-to-face with the dire consequences of firearms violence close to home, they'll never fully understand it.

Driven way beyond the edge, she resorts to drastic measures in order to enforce her own unique solution to eradicate firearms violence from the face of the earth. But once she becomes totally committed to her cause, how far is too far?
