Unsurprisingly, Mick and Ginny aren't on great terms any more.Now it's a week after an incident in which Mick was shot and he's barely back on his feet. Against his better judgement, Mick has agreed to join Ginny in providing security at a ""murder mystery camp"", where a dozen people stay in an isolated, snowbound lodge to play at being detectives. Then a real killer starts bumping people off, one by one... At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Excerpt from The Man Who Tried to Get Away by Stephen R. Donaldson
Moment of Truth
Ginny barked, "Freeze!" in a voice that threatened to crack the floorboards. Her .357 lined up straight on his face.
He didn't freeze. Maybe he was too scared. He wheeled away as if she'd already fired.
Inadvertently he blundered against the door and knocked himself down. Snow blew across him from the porch. Eighteen inches of it had accumulated outside, and it was still falling.
Ginny rushed forward, crouched nearly on top of him. Then she corked the muzzle of her gun on his nose.
Eyes white with alarm, he gasped out, "Don't shoot! I killed her! I confess! Don't shoot me!"
I stopped. Ginny didn't need me. Not now. Maybe she never did.
