COVER SHOT, A Headlines in High Heels Mystery #5
*2016 Best Mysteries for Book Clubs top 10 pick, examiner.com*
November 10, 2015 ♦ Henery Press
It’s been a slow news month in Richmond, and crime reporter Nichelle Clarke is enjoying the downtime when ominous messages and a dead body kick things into high gear. And that’s before the guy with the rifle takes a hospital full of people hostage.
Up to the top of her knee-high Prada boots in leads, Nichelle finds her favorite detectives under pressure to make an arrest, but it doesn’t add up—and ignoring the “why” of this story could cost Nichelle the most important person in her life.
With too much to lose, a shot at the story of a lifetime, and a missing bullet that might be the key to the whole thing, landing this headline could save the day in more ways than one. But can Nichelle dig up the truth before the killer buries her with it?
