New York Times bestselling 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.

I have read most of Phillip Margolin's books and he never never disappoints the reader! This book was different than most of his books in that all of the characters are new to Those familiar with Mr. Margolin's books. From a mystery point of view the reader is kept constantly guessing as to the identity of the real culprit in this yarn. This reader must have changed her mind five times, and that my friends is a real hook. The premise is outstanding, and the build-up even better. Thank you Mr Margolin for writing such a mystery with a great twist. The only sad part is that the book had to end!

The author explains the photograph on the cover, and I can see how intrigued he was when he found it in a restroom in Georgia. It is like the Wyeth painting, Christina's World, there are so many possibilities as to where this picture is leading, what could have happened, etc., and I am still picking up the book, fascinated by the cover. What is inside is not disappointing either, and it begins with the questions this photograph creates and then delves into a past murder which links to the present one and (surprise) back to the origin of the photograph. I haven't finished the book just yet, but I don't anticipate any disappointments, because so far, it has been an excellent read.

Really good book. Good character development and nice twists and turns but I had a nagging thought throughout about a missing link. Good read. I’m from Portland, Or and appreciate his references to local landmarks from the city to the coast!

I am a big Margolin fan and this book did not change my mind. Very enjoyable. Living in the area that he often writes about helps you really visualize this part of the world....Oregon.
It is important not to remove the book's jacket cover because you will always glance back at the photo as you read. A hint......this becomes more and more important as the plot unfolds. A lot of fun to read. The plot is somewhat predictable, but it does take some interesting turns and twists as it gets to the end. Well worth the time.

This is a fast paced and very enjoyable murder mystery with several unique twists and turns. Although I guessed the murderer half way through the book, I had no clue about the motive. The characters are reasonably developed for this genre and the story does not lag. A good read for the beach or an airplane or a snowy weekend. On of Margolin's better efforts!
Fawrindhga
This is a simplistic "mystery" written on an eighth grade level. Far below Margolin"s capabilities and talent.

Unless you're an eighth grader, don't waste your time!

Have not read this author before. Perhaps I don't like the male perspective as an author but felt a few times the female was forced. Just my handle on it although my spouse read it and was ok. I have read lots worse and a few better so fast read for a few days at a beach or to pick up at night after work.Read it because it was on a read this month type list.
I love Phillip Margolin’s books and this one did not disappoint. Was fast paced, easy to read and kept me enthralled.
