Would you risk your own life to save the life of a stranger?

San Francisco, 1944. Someone is trying to kill Sophia Nirenska, a Polish resistance fighter who survived the Warsaw ghetto uprising.

She insists political enemies want to silence her, but homicide detective Oliver Wright, on medical leave from the Marines, believes the motive is more personal.

He and his German shepherd, Harley, vow to protect Sophia, but she insists on doing things her own way—a dangerous decision.

When Oliver discovers the dark secret threatening her, a secret with its roots in Poland, he must either enforce the law and betray Sophia, or accept a rougher kind of justice.

Shadowed by Death accurately portrays the fears and troubles of the communities of northern California as they bear the burdens of World War II and celebrate the gift of finding family among strangers.
