Summary
"Every morning, as her husband Mike straps on his Sig Sauer and pulls on his heavy Magnum boots, Jamie Anderson tenses up. Then comes the call she has always feared: A shooting at police headquarters. Mike isn't hurt, but his long-time partner is grievously injured. As weeks pass and her husband's insomnia and disconnectedness mount, Jamie realizes he is an invisible casualty of the attack. Then the phone rings again. Another shooting - this time it's Mike who pulled the trigger. But the shooting does more than alter just Jamie's world. It's about to change everything for two other women. Christie Simmons, Mike's flamboyant ex, with whom he shares custody of their teenaged son, will see the tragedy as an opportunity to find a second chance with Mike. And Jamie's younger sister, Lou, an elephant keeper who finds being with animals simpler than humans, will need to overcome her own losses to help the big sister who raised her. As the press descends and public cries of police brutality swell, Jamie desperately tries to hold together her family - no matter what it takes"--
