The Bullet

The Bullet by Mary Louise Kelly  357 pp.

How does a woman live with a bullet in her neck for thirty-four years and know nothing about it? The answer is startling and French literature professor Caroline Cashion learns the startling truth. When she was three a double murder was committed and she was injured. The doctors chose to leave the bullet lodged at the base of her skull for fear that the surgery would cause more damage. Now the bullet is causing her health problems and it could be the only key to convicting the suspect from thirty-four years ago. Family secrets, a cold case, insistent journalists, and crooked lawyers all combine in this convoluted but page-turner of a story. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen there would be a twist that took it in another direction. It's a mostly satisfying thriller.
