Shot Girl (Annie Seymour Series #4) by Karen E. Olson

New Haven police reporter Annie Seymour has a talent for running into trouble. So it should come as no surprise when her co-worker’s bachelorette party at a local club quickly turns into a crime scene. What is surprising is that the dead club manager in the parking lot happens to be Annie's ex-husband—and the bullet shells around his body match the gun she has in her car.
Coming face to face with her past, Annie delves into a conspiracy involving everyone from a male stripper to a shot girl. If she wants to get the story, she’ll have to escape a killer—before she becomes the next headline.

Annie Seymour stands over her dead ex-husband. She becomes the prime suspect. As she finds out what he was into and what he was doing when he turns up in her town after 15 years apart, she knows she did the right thing all those years ago. I liked Annie. She is a strong woman. She asks questions, knowing when to push and when to back off. I wonder about her mother. Whose side was she on? I liked her relationships with Tom and Vinny. I will have to read the earlier books to see how it settled into what it is now. The story was good. The mystery was well done until the reveal of who the murderer is. That came totally out of left field. The person was not on my list of suspects (because we all know the heroine is never guilty.) The warnings that came through the story for Annie to watch her back don't make sense when the end is revealed. I figured out much of who was involved and why but the murderer was never more than a blip, actually less than a blip. Never saw it coming. I do plan on getting the rest of the series because I do want to know where Annie started.

Note to publishers: it's not really a sample if it doesn't contain any of the story! These useless, marketing-driven samples are a great aegument for real-life bookstores where a person can leaf through paper copies as long as it takes to figure out whether a book is going to be interesting, entertaining or useful.

Great reading....plot, characters, emotion, humor, mystery...thoroughly enjoyed this book. I hope to see more of the Anne Seymore character.

I'm really going to miss Annie Seymour. She's a woman of (somewhat) valor, and her insatiable curiosity and penchant for falling into trouble makes her a great read.

Karen E. Olson manages to tie up the series nicely by providing a terrific thrill ride, packed with a variety of her usual, unusual characters. In this book we manage to meet a male stripper, a couple of "shot girls", a somewhat mysterious youth minister, wayward kids and teachers, and most importantly, Annie's ex-husband, who's a trip all by himself. Watching Annie fall into yet another untenable situation, this book really ratchets up Annie's background and emotional history. It's completely satisfying from start to finish.

I'll miss Annie greatly, but really look forward to July, 2009 and MISSING INK.

New Haven Herald police reporter Annie Seymour is talked into attending a bachelorette party at the Rouge Lounge where a male strip show will highlight the gala. She is stunned to find her ex-husband Ralph Seymour as the bar¿s manager, a con artist who tricked people out of their money when he wrote fake articles for a newspaper. When Annie hears shots, she runs outside to find Ralph looking better dead than when he was alive. --- Annie¿s friend police officer Tom takes her to headquarters because the bullets came from a gun like hers. It is confiscated by the cops as evidence once ballistic testing proves it a certainty. However, she is freed when it is determined Ralph died from a heart attack not bullets. Annie finds herself plunged in a world of drugs, prostitution and gun selling while someone has her watched closely to insure she never learns the truth if perchance she does she will be reunited with her ex. --- Karen E. Olson has written a thought provoking journalistic investigative thriller in which it is hard to ascertain which side of the law some folks are on. The support cast fleshes out the plot (no pun intended) while Annie deals in a believable manner with her best friend, her ex-friend and her former spouse (both alive and dead in his case). SHOT GIRL addresses social issues inside the context of an amateur sleuth mystery. --- Harriet Klausner
