Book review: The Bullet by Mary Louise Kelly
Caroline is a French professor at Georgetown with carpal tunnel, and when she gets an MRI, the technician asks her the above question, which shocks her. She has a bullet? In her neck? How did it get there? When? Why doesn't she remember anything or know about it? Of course she goes to her parents, and she finds out a story that happened when she was a small child that is shocking and frightening.
I don't want to give away too much but suffice it to say that this book was thrilling, exciting, and page-turning. I read the book all in one day. It had a couple of good twists I didn't see coming but didn't feel like they were blindsiding me. I liked that it was mostly set in D.C. and partly in Atlanta--that was a nice change of pace. It was a fun and a great beach read.
I checked this book out of the library.
