Who pulls a gun at a bachelorette party? Someone has been shot, maybe even killed, but British fiction writer/protagonist Leonora Shaw can’t piece together what happened from the hospital bed where she's recovering from an unfortunate injury of her own. The answers are unveiled with Gillian Flynn—style trickery.
