‘All I Did Was Shoot My Man’ by Walter Mosley
Private investigator Leonid McGill is used to his clients being guilty, or at least not fully innocent. It’s a fact he so readily accepts that he’s begun to dislike his job - until he’s sent a new client, Zella Grisham. He is to help her resettle into society after eight years behind bars. It should be the easiest gig McGill has had in years, since he’s certain Grisham is innocent. But it could be his toughest job, since his lies helped send her away.
