A brilliant stand alone novel from the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author involving a suburban madam, an imprisoned killer whose conviction could be overturned—and the child they share.  Once the star employee of a low-level pimp, Heloise put him in prison and then created a new life for herself in an insular community where her neighbors keep to themselves and don’t ask too many questions. But the security she’s worked so hard to establish is now under siege on multiple fronts. Her once oblivious accountant is asking loaded questions. Her longtime protector is retiring from the police department. Her employees can’t be trusted. And not even the best escort services are immune to the effects of the lingering recession.  Everything tells her that it’s time to get out. But the one man who knows almost all of her secrets says she has to stay in. And given that another suburban madam has turned up dead in a nearby town, it’s all too possible that Heloise’s former pimp is just as lethal behind bars as he was on the outside.
