Shooting Straight in the Dark by Rick Blechta

McClelland & Stewart, 2002

Shooting Straight in the Dark is the story of 30-year-old Kit Mason, six years blind and still having trouble accepting what’s happened to her. With her career as a song writer and guitarist stalled and her personal life is the pits, all she has is her (semi) trusty Newfoundland guide dog, Shadow, and four good friends, members of her former softball team, The Ruthless Babes.

When one of the women is brutally murdered, Kit and her remaining friends have a lot of unanswered questions which the police aren't willing to treat seriously. Taking the investigation into their own hands, they find out that the truth about their friend's violent death goes a lot deeper than they ever imagined -- or wanted to know.
