When I think of a gun or #Revolver I almost always associate it with this book which was written around an photo (like the one on the cover) that the author found hanging on a wall in a diner in Georgia.

#FierceFeb #MeAndAGun Today's prompt made me think of this Phillip Margolin book I reviewed a few years ago. Inspired by an actual photo that Margolin saw in a Georgia diner-finding it intriguing, he bought it & imagined a story around it. The book intersects three stories, set fifteen years apart around an award-winning photo. More of a quieter suspense is built in this one but I enjoyed it & its setting in a fictional town on the Oregon Coast.

Cinfhen Very cool image❤️ 2y
batsy What @Cinfhen said, I love the pic! Book sounds intriguing, sometimes a quiet thriller is just the thing 👍 2y
