In downtown Manhattan, two police officers answer a noise complaint and are shot for their trouble. Meanwhile, across the bridge in Brooklyn, forty-year-old Emma Price faces a midlife crisis. Her husband is bailing on their ten-year marriage. She's got a young son to raise. And she's pregnant to boot. When her longtime baby-sitter drowns, Emma is drawn into a multilayered mystery. Solving it will mean examining some unpleasant home truths. A hit-and-run death in Massachusetts. A carjacking gone wrong in New Mexico. An apparent suicide in Manhattan. Emma Price will discover what links these deaths. Entering into a prickly partnership with a streetwise Brooklyn cop, she finds herself questioning many of the assumptions she's made about the people she's decided to trust and love. As the novel swings between her comfortable middle-class existence, New York City's downtown club scene, and the gritty world of Brooklyn Homicide, Price and her on-again, off-again ally, Detective Laurence Solomon, will try to solve this puzzle in time to catch a killer.
