The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin
From the moment she stepped foot in NYC, Addison Stone’s subversive street art made her someone to watch, and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more.

WHY? A pop culture icon is murdered, and her fans are determined to discover the truth. Interviews reveal Addison’s real world, and as those closest to her begin to reveal things Addison would never tell a soul, her murder is thrown in a whole new light.

Keeping silent is a double edged sword, and with Donovan’s return her secrets are about to find the light. Continue reading
