Addie's mother is accused of murder. She found her friend dead on the floor and picked up the gun. The cops found there and are sure she's the killer. Addie knows she's not. Now how to prove it.
Poisoned Pen Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published September 14th.

Addie asks questions as well as her cop friend. Then something happens which breaks the case open. If they can just stay alive long enough to take the killer down...
