Through a narrative which weaves past and present, No Safe Place introduces the compelling character, Kerry Kilcannon, and raises questions about abortion politics, the gun culture in America, and the degree to which the press is - or should be - intent on exposing the private lives of political leaders.

This, and the difficulties in sourcing gum during wartime, provided strong incentives for the production of synthetic substitutes for natural gums, based on hydrocarbons, which was given a further boost in 1950 by the Korean War.
