Kate Klein's move to suburbia has been full of unpleasant surprises. Her once-loving husband is hardly ever home. The super-mommies on the playground snub her. Her days are spent carpooling and enduring endless games of Candy Land. So when a local mother is murdered, Kate finds the intrigue hard to resist. Though her husband and the police chief warn her that crime-fighting is a job best left to professionals, Kate launches her own unofficial investigation when her kids are in nursery school. As she unearths clues, Kate is drawn deeper into the victim's double life. She discovers the dirty secrets behind the picket-fence façade -- and the compromises modern women make as they navigate between independence and obligation, small towns and big cities, being a mother and having a life of one's own.
