Shot Girl

Shot Girl
by Karen E. Olson

This book is a roller coaster ride around New Haven, Connecticut. When Annie Seymour attends her co-worker's bachelorette party at a local nightclub she is shocked to find that the bar manager is her ex-husband, Ralph. Ralph kisses Annie and Annie demurs with a well-placed kick. Shortly after this altercation, Ralph is found dead outside of the bar. Annie is the prime suspect until the autopsy reveals that Ralph died of a heart attack. Meanwhile, Annie is taken off the police beat by her editor at The New Haven Herald because of a perceived conflict of interest. She is relegated to covering community events. Even as Annie covers these stories she keeps crossing paths with Ralph's cohorts. Annie doesn't believe in coincidences and investigates. -- recommended by Donna G. - Eiseley and Walt Branch Libraries
