Jessica Huntington, shopaholic sleuth with a black AMEX card is in over her head, but a damn good swimmer! Jessica is hiding out from her own well-planned life, now in shambles. Her law career tanked by the Great Recession, she failed miserably as a desperate housewife in the Silicon Valley. Playing beat-the-clock with her 30-something hormones for 3 long years her final reward was a little baby fat, but no baby. The final blow, though, was walking in on her husband in bed with a well-known Hollywood blond.
The Rancho Mirage home where she grew up, surrounded by the beauty of the desert resort town near Palm Springs, seems the perfect place to take refuge. That is until her best friend’s husband is murdered. Jessica and her friends are soon swept into the fray, stalked by scoundrels in pantyhose, stilettos, Bruno Maglis, and Armani suits. Roger Stone had something that got him killed. What was it and to what lengths will they go to get it back? Can this flawed, but resourceful heroine get to them before they get to her?
