Don’t miss the acclaimed mystery series from the author of Bad Mother

The investigative business is booming for Juliet Applebaum and her husband Peter, but their new client, incarcerated in Dartmore State Prison, is going to be a real challenge. Sandra Lorgeree has enlisted Juliet to locate the son she surrendered to foster care—as well as the foster parents who seem to have disappeared with him. But Juliet’s new case takes a deadly detour when the desperate young mother is knifed to death—allegedly by another inmate.

Prison officials dismiss the murder as just one more fatality in lockdown. Juliet has her doubts. Now Juliet is determined to make Sandra’s last wish come true. Even if it means tracking little Noah—and the killer—through the dark maze of a widespread conspiracy. And even if it winds up pitting her against some very wealthy, powerful, and dangerous enemies….

Ayelet Waldman is a graduate of Harvard Law School and a former public defender. In addition to the Mommy-Track series that includes such titles as Death Gets a Time-Out and The Big Nap, she is the author of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, Daughter’s Keeper, and other books.
