SLEDGE is a fast-paced, suspense thriller short story from the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sara's Game.
Years ago, in a small Virginia town, a murderer hammered his way through the Smythville police force and then disappeared. He left Officer Mary Walker alive, but he crushed her leg, her confidence, and her spirits.
Now a private investigator, Mary takes sleuthing work as it comes and keeps a watchful eye over her shoulder. But, during a routine surveillance job on a chilly October night, a ghost from her past leaves her future uncertain.
