“A witty, modern voice delivers a captivating tale about a mysterious death.”

Anna Kagen seems to have it all: She’s young, beautiful, and married to a wealthy, prominent man.
But within the walls of her San Francisco mansion, she spends her time dodging her husband’s barbs and hunting down potential friends for her son, Jack, a 10-year-old on the autistic spectrum.
That old life suddenly seems idyllic when, on a school field trip, she makes the small error in judgment that sets in motion a chain of events that leads to another boy’s death. Suddenly Jack is a suspect, her husband’s career is in jeopardy, and Anna has to choose between loyalty to her son … and what may be her one chance at happiness.
