Dead Girl Walking
“911. What’s your emergency?”
“I… I’ve been shot. My wife, too. I think she might be dying. We were robbed. He had a gun.”
“Rob? Are you there? I’ll stay on the line with you. The ambulance will be there in just a minute or two.”
There was only silence, as though a mute button had been hit. Suddenly, in the distance came the familiar drone of approaching sirens. “Rob? I can hear the sirens now. Are you strong enough to get to the street so they’ll see you?”
And then there was a click, and the drone of a dial tone.
The beautiful young woman, her chestnut hair tumbling around a pretty face, rose petals tangled in the loose strands, could be any girl out celebrating a special night, but the for the bullet wound in the back of her head. As Emergency Room Nurse Jessie Novak desperately battles to keep her alive, her thoughts are racing - who shot this beautiful young woman in the head and more importantly, why?
Ann Hart’s life hangs by a thread, and Jessie cannot bear to see her die without justice being done. Being an emergency room nurse is like hunting for clues, and Jessie is sure she can find the person who hurt Ann. She also asks her friend Detective Sam Dallas for help digging into the Hart’s past. And, then Jessie receives a gift that sends shivers up her spine: a huge bouquet of blood-red roses, just like the ones in Ann’s hair…
As the first snowflakes start to fall, another body turns up. Jessie is sure that she’s in danger too—someone is watching her. She’s sure of it. Sam is reluctant to see the link but Jessie knows she must find the killer before he strikes again. He is stalking her through the frozen streets and he doesn’t want his fun to stop. Can Jessie turn the tables on the killer, or is she just a dead girl walking?
