Publisher's Summary

In the latest and most surprising novel in the best-selling Leonid McGill series, Leonid finds himself caught between his sins of the past and an all-too-vivid present.
Seven years ago, Zella Grisham came home to find her man, Harry Tangelo, in bed with her friend. The weekend before, $6.8 million had been stolen from Rutgers Assurance Corp., whose offices are across the street from where Zella worked. Zella didn't remember shooting Harry, but she didn't deny it either. The district attorney was inclined to call it temporary insanity - until the police found $80,000 from the Rutgers heist hidden in her storage space.
For reasons of his own, Leonid McGill is convinced of Zella's innocence. But as he begins his investigation, his life begins to unravel. His wife is drinking more than she should. His oldest son has dropped out of college and moved in with an ex-prostitute. His youngest son is working for him and trying to stay within the law. And his father, whom he thought was long dead, has turned up under an alias.
A gripping story of murder, greed, and retribution, All I Did Was Shoot My Man is also the poignant tale of one man's attempt to stay connected to his family.

Althrough Leonid is flawed and has a past he is still attractive in a clumsy hero sort of way. I love your voice Mirron WIllis and secretly wait for the day that you will read me 1000 page bookle based on the adventures of Leonid McGill!

Any of the ohter book in this series The Long Fall was nice.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene when the would be robbers broke into what he thought was his safe home. BAD Idea.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

When he talked to his father for the first time since he left him as a boy. Something about the rejection you feel for years only to learn that the person so near and never reached out to you. Tears.
