9780062399588: Woman with a Gun

At a retrospective on the work of acclaimed photographer Kathy Moran, aspiring novelist Stacey Kim is fascinated by the exhibition's centerpiece: the famous Woman with a Gun, which launched the artist's career. Shot from behind, the enigmatic black-and-white image depicts a woman in a wedding dress standing on the shore, facing the sea. But this is no serene, romantic portrait. Behind her back, she holds a six-shooter.

The picture captures Stacey's imagination and raises compelling questions: Who is this woman? And why does she have a gun? Obsessed with finding answers, Stacey soon discovers the identity of the woman: a suspect in an unsolved ten-year-old murder investigation. Convinced that proof of the woman's guilt, or innocence, is somehow connected to the photograph, Stacey embarks on a relentless investigation.

Drawn deeper into the case, Stacey discovers that 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 and make her tell the truth about what happened that fateful day.

From the Back Cover:

This compelling thriller, from New York Times Bestseller Phillip Margolin, centers on an intriguing photograph that may contain long-hidden answers to the mystery of a millionaire's murder.

Visiting a retrospective of acclaimed photographer Kathy Moran's work, aspiring novelist Stacey Kim is entranced by the exhibition's centerpiece--the famous Woman with a Gun, which won a Pulitzer Prize and launched Moran's career.

Curious and obsessed with finding answers, Stacey discovers that the photograph's subject is Megan Cahill, suspected of killing her millionaire husband with the six-shooter on their wedding night.

But the murder was never solved and Stacey learns that everyone involved has differing opinions of Megan's culpability. The one person who may know the whole story--Kathy Moran--isn't talking. Stacey must find a way to reach her or the truth may never come to light.
