Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling master of mystery Phillip Margolin transcends his traditional territory in this new and different book, a haunting thriller inspired by an unforgettable photograph.

Visiting an art museum displaying a retrospective of acclaimed photographer Kathy Moran's work, aspiring novelist Stacey Kim is stunned by the photo at the center of the show - the famous Woman with a Gun, which won a Pulitzer Prize and launched the photographer's career. Shot from behind, the enigmatic black-and-white image is a picture of a woman in a wedding dress, standing on the shore at night, facing the sea. Behind her back, she holds a six-shooter.

The image captures Stacey's imagination, raising a host of compelling questions. Has the woman killed her husband on their wedding night? Is she going to commit suicide? Is she waiting for someone she plans to kill? Obsessed with finding answers, Stacey discovers that the woman in the photograph is Megan Cahill, suspected of killing her husband, millionaire Raymond Cahill, with the six-shooter on their wedding night. But the murder was never solved.

Drawn deeper into the case, Stacey finds that everyone involved has a different opinion of Megan's culpability. But the one person who may know the whole story - Kathy Moran - isn't talking. Stacey must find a way to get to the reclusive photographer or the truth may never see the light of day.

    "Disappointed"

    This story was a bit hard to follow...not as well written as his previous books.

    Story
    "Okay Read, but not much mystery"

    I think this was well written and performed. But, and it is a big one, there wasn't much mystery. I'm really rotten at knowing "who dunnit" early but I pretty much knew immediately.

    There were some connections between people and past events that weren't known until fairly late in the story, but the killer was obvious.

    The narrator was excellent and I was able to listen at 1.5 speed without a problem.

    I've read a couple other books by the author, and he's fine but not in my top tier of authors I love. I don't remember what attracted me to this book.

    "Quite a mystery. I love this author"

    I always like this author, and constantly look for new books by him. When I saw the cover , I was afraid he had reverted to romance novel, however, I couldn't have been more wrong. I missed Shawn Scully, but liked the new guy, Jack (prosecutor from Oregon. The plot was interesting, and the ending a surprise. Good book

    "couldn't get into it"
    Could you see Woman with a Gun: A Novel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe that's it. The book seemed so far fetched that maybe it should be on TV.

    Story
    "A good casual listen, enjoyed the narration"

    I'm not a modern detective fan ( excepting Tony Hillerman and Craig Johnson) so I'm not sure what made me pre-order this book, but I did.
    I found the narrator easy to listen and will look at other books she has done.
    The novel, while a bit shallow, was good enough to serve the purpose of providing "mind candy" while my hands were busy with other tasks.
    Would I ever listen to it again - no.
    Would I recommend it to my friends that are hardcore detective novel people - no.
