Two old friends give Bruce a second chance and agree to help him with his investigation: his best friend, Jimmy, a computer genius and history buff who's been in AA for years, and Jimmy's girlfriend Barbara, a counselor who sometimes crosses the line between helping and codependency. Barbara works a night shift at the detox and confronts a counselor who might still be dealing drugs. Bruce gets a job temping for Guff's arrogant nephew. Between the three of them, suspects start piling up. The trail leads back to the detox. Or does it?
In Death Will Get You Sober, Bruce discovers that the church basements of AA are a small world in the big city of New York. As he grapples with staying sober, he finds that not drinking is only the beginning of coming back to life - a life he finds he wants to keep when it's threatened by a killer. Debut author Elizabeth Zelvin has used her expertise as an addiction councilor to pen a riveting mystery filled with memorable, realistic characters who are as flawed as they are heroic.

Another good read!
Excellent whodunit with a side order of the struggle to keep sober, especially after watching a friend die. Strong characters and difficult situations are important to the steady plot.
I wanted to read this one after reading Death Will Help You Leave Him, and found it hiding in the TBR pile since May 2015! Glad that I unearthed it!
Mark Boyett did a great job as narrator.
