Wrongly accused of being a cocaine queen, she has lost her job, her reputation, andworst of allcustody of her son. Even after the charges are dropped, suspicion lingers. Desperate to get it all back, she takes what she considers the only path open to her: she goes on the hunt for the real drug queen. Unfortunately, the one person she is sure will be able to help her is the one person she wants least to see again: Joe Pratts, her exfianc, a man whose connections to the drug world once ended their relationship. Trying not to fall again for Joe is just the beginning of Marys challenges, however. The drug queen she is targeting is safely ensconced in the suburbs, hiding behind the faade of domestic tranquility. And taking her down means doing something that strikes Mary a little too close to home: she would have to leave the drug queens young daughter without a mother. Sweet Mary is a gripping, heart-rending story with a noir soul and plenty of surprising twists an assured debut from a writer with tremendous experience and talent.
