If you like a writer who takes a stand, you'll appreciate this short,
fast-moving, imaginative novel. Hoffman takes on two of my favorite
villains, politicians with their cojones gripped by the gun control lobby
and reporters who prey on victims' families.

His heroine, a waitress with aspirations as a singer, is victimized by both.
When her best friend, Tom, is killed in a senseless act of violence (is
there any other kind?), a mic-in-your-face TV reporter prods her into saying
the wrong thing. Her words, "It wasn't the gun, it was that man," are taken
out of context by a scumbag senator and the NRA-in-drag United Gun
Association and turned into a national slogan to promote their pro-firearm
agenda.

Paula embarks on a one-woman crusade with an air pistol, looking to both
redeem her quote-spoiled reputation and to give the gun-totting
bullets-for-breakfast crowd a little taste of their own medicine. Her
adventures are fast paced, her friends and enemies well-drawn, and her cause
is just, which makes it well worth reading. ( )
