Exotic dancer Megan Kelley never expects the police to show up on her doorstep with the news that Carly, her pregnant roommate, is dead. Now Megan not only has to come up with the full rent by herself, but she seems to be one of the few convinced that Carly's death isn't as straightforward as it appears. But was Carly murdered, or had her life simply spiraled out of control? And, if she was a victim of foul play, "whodunit"?
Megan is determined to solve the mystery of what really happened to Carly, even if that means infiltrating a clinic for unwed mothers-to-be or partnering with a grumpy exotic dancer to help with her sleuthing efforts. But instead of getting answers, Megan's quest turns into more questions . . . until her investigation leads to a horrifying truth more shocking than anything she imagined.
