Visiting an art museum exhibiting a retrospective of the work of acclaimed photographer Kathy Moran, aspiring novelist Stacey Kim is stunned by the picture at the center of the show—the famous Woman with a Gun, which won a Pulitzer Prize and launched the artist's career. Shot from behind, the enigmatic black-and-white image depicts a woman in a wedding dress standing on the shore at night, facing the sea. In her hands, clasped behind her back, she holds a six-shooter.
The image captures Stacey's imagination, and raises a host of compelling questions. Obsessed with finding answers, she soon discovers the identity of the woman, who is a suspect in a ten-year-old murder investigation. Convinced that proof of the woman's guilt, or innocence, is somehow connected to the photograph, Stacey embarks on a relentless investigation. But Kathy Moran isn't talking. Stacey must find a way to get to the reclusive photographer, and get her to talk, or the truth about what happened that day will stay forever hidden in the shadows.

Summary: Reclusive but critically-acclaimed photographer Kathy Moran discovered her talent late in life; she used to practice law, but after being disbarred she devoted herself to her passion while working as a bartender to make ends meet. Her most famous photograph is "Woman with a Gun," which won her a Pulitzer Prize and launched her career. Stacey Kim is an aspiring novelist who, like Moran, supports herself with low-paying jobs while pursuing her dream. One afternoon, determined to take a break, she goes to an art museum that is hosting a retrospective of Moran's work--featuring, of course, "Woman with a Gun." Stacey is stunned by the enigmatic photograph of a woman in a wedding dress, standing on the shore at night, staring out at the sea. The black and white image was shot from behind, and the most startling part of the picture is the ancient six-shooter the woman conceals behind her back. Stacey's imagination runs wild: Has the woman killed her husband on their wedding night? Is she going to commit suicide? Is she waiting for someone who is arriving by boat? Is it a lover or someone she plans to kill? Increasingly obsessed with discovering the secret behind the photograph, Stacey learns that Moran lives on the Oregon coast and refuses to give interviews--and that the woman in the photograph is Megan Cahill, accused of shooting her husband, millionaire Raymond Cahill, to death with the six-shooter on their wedding night. The Cahill murder was never solved, and Stacey abandons her novel to discover the true story behind the photograph. But she finds that everyone involved in the case has a different opinion of Megan's culpability, and ultimately it is another photograph in Moran's collection that leads Stacey to uncover what really happened on the evening Megan and Raymond Cahill were married.
