Brilliantly witty mystery from the author of Bad Mother and Love and Treasure... Teeter-tottering on the brink of sanity, Juliet Applebaum not only solves crimes; she does it with diapers, bottles, and.oh yes, three kids in tow. This time she'll play hide-and-seek with some of South Central's seediest denizens. But this is no child's play. Their fledgling detective agency has spread its wings-and now husband-and-wife team Juliet Applebaum and Al Hockey, once in the hole, are finally flying high. A Hollywood lawyer uses them regularly to clean up after some of his less-than-discreet celeb clients. They see people come through the doors of their garage-turned-office, seeking defense investigation. They also see insurance investigation cases. But Juliet and Al are about to find out: they ain't seen nothin' yet. Heavenly has come to Juliet with a story too sad for any detective with a conscience to turn down. Her sister, an addict and streetwalker, has turned up dead-and the police couldn't care less. With any luck-and with plucky Juliet doing all she can-Heavenly will learn what she can about her sister's death and, if possible, bring the killer to justice. But it's hard going undercover when you're a tall, gorgeous transsexual. Ayelet Waldman, a Harvard Law School graduate and former public defender, is the author of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, Daughter's Keeper, and Red Hook Road as well as the Mommy-Track Mysteries, including such titles as Death Gets a Time-Out and A Playdate with Death.
