From the author of the critically acclaimed Anonymous Sources, former NPR correspondent Mary Louise Kelly’s latest novel The Bullet is a heart-pounding story about fear, family secrets, and one woman’s hunt for answers.

Caroline Cashion is beautiful, intelligent, and a professor of French literature at Georgetown University. But in a split second, everything she’s known is proved to be a lie. A single bullet, gracefully tapered at one end, is found lodged at the base of her skull. Caroline is stunned. It makes no sense: she has never been shot. She has no entry wound. No scar. Then, over the course of one awful evening, she learns the truth: that she was adopted when she was three years old, after her real parents were murdered. Caroline was there the day they were attacked and she was wounded too, and now must search for the truth about what happened that day.

Mary Louise Kelly spent two decades traveling the world as a reporter for NPR and the BBC. As an NPR correspondent covering the intelligence beat and the Pentagon, she reported on wars, terrorism, and rising nuclear powers. A Georgia native, her first job was working as a staff writer at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kelly was educated at Harvard and at Cambridge University in England. She lives in Washington, D.C., and Florence, Italy, with her husband and their two children.

And we are proud to say she is the daughter of club member James Kelly and wife Carol!
