With One Shoe
by Karen L. Abrahamson
Detective Ron Conroy gave up hoping for a better world. When he attends the home of Elvira Paradis to investigate her missing daughter, he finds a woman worn beyond her years, but also visions of someplace wonderful.
A delinquent youth leads Ron into the world of high school art classes, unrequited love and lost hope. Will the case end in the arrest of the wrong man—or rekindle Ron’s faith?
