Nominated for a 2009 Shamus Award
New Haven police reporter Annie Seymour has a talent for running into trouble. So it should come as no shock when her coworker's bachelorette party at a local club turns into a crime scene. What is surprising is that the dead bar manager on the sidewalk outside happens to be Annie's ex-husband — and the bullet shells around his body match the gun she has in her car.
Coming face-to-face with her past, Annie delves into a conspiracy involving everyone from a male stripper to a shot girl. If she wants to get the story, she'll have to escape a killer ... before she becomes the next headline.
