Mama Rose’s peaceful existence shatters when a childhood friend returns, and reopens a case where she pulled the trigger. When her friend is murdered, Rose must brave blackmail and corruption to catch a killer before she becomes the next victim.
Community vet “Mama Rose” Hardie is enjoying her golden years in Kenya, taking care of local animals and wildlife, and supporting her disabled husband.
