Summary
Heloise lives in a suburb where she's just a mom, the youngish widow with a forgettable job who somehow never misses a soccer game or a school play. In the state capitol, she's the redheaded lobbyist with a good cause. But in discreet hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams, if you can afford her hourly fee. Her secret life, a life she was forced to build after the legitimate world turned its back on her, is under siege. One county over, another so-called suburban madam has been found dead in her car. Or a suicide? And then she learns that her son's father might be released from prison, which is problematic because he doesn't know he has a son. The killer and former pimp also doesn't realize that he's serving a life sentence because Heloise betrayed him. With no formal education, no real family, and no friends, Heloise has to remake her life, again. Disappearing will be the easy part
Summary
Suburban madam Heloise, with no one left to trust, decides to get out of the game when another suburban madam is brutally murdered, forcing her to stay one step ahead of a killer--and the father of her child--who is just as lethal behind bars as he was on the outside
