(From the publisher):
When a beautiful young woman stumbles into a rough Algonquin
Bay tavern covered in black fly bites, bits of leaves stuck in her curly red hair, the bartender knows she is either drunk or high. No one in Algonquin Bay goes out unprotected in black fly season.
"Red" as the local cops come to call her, is neither, but it takes a full examination to discover that her woozy behavior isn't due to drugs or diminished mental capacity. Red has a bullet in her brain. And no memory of how it happened or who she is.
If homicide detectives John Cardinal and Lise Delorme haven't a clue to her identity, they do know she is in mortal danger. Someone tried to kill her. Someone left her for dead. Someone will try again if word leaks out she is not.
