Shooting Straight in the Dark

A novel by

Thirty-year-old Kit Mason has been blind for six years, and she still hasn't accepted what has happened to her. Not only is her career as a songwriter/guitarist stalled, but her personal life is the pits. Kit's closest friends, Carolina, Susan, Marion, and Jackie, all members of her former softball team, the Ruthless Babes, have encouraged her to branch out in her music, and decide - during a ribald and beer-fuelled get-together - to kick-start her social life with a companion-wanted ad in a Toronto newspaper.

Before the plans can take effect, however, one of the Babes is brutally murdered. The police are sure that she was the victim of a serial killer who is on the loose, but the Babes, shattered though they are, begin to suspect that the police are wrong.

With the fighting spirit that served them well on the baseball diamond, they throw themselves - sometimes literally - into the investigation, much to the annoyance of the police detective assigned to the case. What they find puts them all at risk, and affects Kit's life in ways she never could have expected - just when her musical career and her love-life are taking a turn for the better.

Shooting Straight in the Dark, full of the atmosphere of the music business and the affectionate banter of good friends, is smart, funny, and crammed with suspense.
