Eli Goshen loves his wife. He has for over fifty years. He’s always taken care of her, but when she takes an unexpected gambling trip to Reno and fails to return, he has no choice but to hire a private detective to find her.

A detective who’s been around gambling all her life.

A detective who knows how fast a big win can turn into the biggest loss of all.

With "Long, Slow Suicide," Annie Reed, the award-winning author of PRETTY LITTLE HORSES, delivers an emotional punch that will resonate with readers long after the story is over.
"I've been a fan of Annie Reed's short stories for a long time." —Marcelle Dubé, author of THE SHOELESS KID
