Belle Elkins is the DA in the small, impoverished and drug-ridden West Virginia town where she grew up.   One day a man walks into the local coffee shop and guns down three old men – then he just leaves.    Carla Elkins,  Belle’s 16 year old daughter is a witness.

Keller has done a fine job for a debut novel.  The very young sounding and nasal voiced narrator was a bit irritating.  Sometimes it felt like the plot was too fragmented and there was,  perhaps,  one extra and unnecessary thread.  I’d be willing to read a series.
