Rose Leary tends bar in 1980s New York City to subsidize her writing career. Someone keeps killing women at her job, and Rose suspects she's next. Despite official warnings to leave sleuthing to the pros, she struggles to find the murderer in a desperate race to save herself and her work. Smart and stubborn Rose brings her sharp wit to the search, defying her fear with dark humor. And cocktails.
