“Bullet” is a suspense novel by a new author Mary Louise Kelly. Caroline Cushion goes in for a MRI and the doctors discover a bullet lodged near the base of her skull. When questioned, her parents tell her that she was adopted at the age of three after her birth parents were murdered and she was wounded – a bullet buried too close to her spinal cord to remove. Desperate to learn the truth, Caroline returns to Atlanta to search through a dusty newspaper archive. A cop who worked the case tells her that police never found enough evidence to nail their suspect, but the bullet in her neck might identify who it is – if she is willing to take the chance.
