In a small town along the Mississippi River, separate but nearly identical attacks have left two married couples brutally murdered in their homes. A young boy—the lone survivor of the killings—now lies comatose in the hospital. And the police’s only lead is the boy’s terrified description of the assailant: a “monster."

With a husband who works long hours trying to make partner and two rambunctious kids that are running her ragged, Margie Peterson is like any other worn-out suburban mom. When she decides to take a job as a PI for a seedy local detective agency, everything changes. It doesn’t take long for Margie to get in over her head: Her first day on the job she totals her minivan, mistakenly enters a drag contest, and winds up in the bathroom with a dead transvestite. But when Margie finds her home number in the victim’s phone, things really start to get interesting.

Got about a third in and was going to stop, it was so slow and about nothing, I carried on and it was not worth it. A book with hardly a plot and boring.

What’s a nice, proper dame like Joan Parker doing in a place like Dick Moonlight’s office? The scar running down her face - from the business end of an axe - has something to do with it. Shortly after the attack that killed her husband and left her for dead, she pointed the finger at her son, Christopher, who now sits in jail. But the woman insists the police have it all wrong - Christopher didn’t do it - and she just needs the private eye to prove it. Moonlight knows mothers will say anything to protect their kids. He also knows how the police can take a mistake and run with it.

Who slaughtered Jared and Carla Walker and their young son in their own home? Only their teenage daughter, the sole survivor, knows the truth. But it’s buried in her traumatized mind - leaving Detective Wade Jackson to weigh a tangle of inconclusive evidence and size up a gallery of suspects. A gang of carjackers may have graduated to home invasion and homicide, but Jackson’s not ruling out a bitter brother-in-law convinced the Walkers ripped him off big-time, a young heroin addict in forbidden love with the family’s daughter, or the former employer Jared Walker had on the blackmail hook.
