A bootleg Nine Inch Nails cassette tape.
Weird thing for Kira to find abandoned by a sewer grate on her way to school.
The hand-drawn NIN logo in marker catches Kira's eye. Who tossed the tape? And why?
Kira pockets it, of course. Seems a shame to leave it in the gutter. Who knows what kind of extra tracks she might find on it?
...Now she only needs to figure out a way to play the thing.
A twisting, short novel of Kira's high school past from the Kira Brightwell crime fiction series by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith.
