"Pull up your legwarmers, tease your hair high, and press play to your Michael Jackson Thriller cassette, because you're in for an unforgettable murderous treat! A witty page-turning 1980s throwback thriller readers are raving about." (Literary Lover Reviews)
Ginger Mallowan embodies everything the 1980s stand for, from big hair to power suits to “Material Girl”…until her son disappears during a beach walk one night. That’s the moment girls don’t want to have fun anymore, and the moment she starts hunting for answers.
Now Ginger’s hair is a bit flatter, her power suits packed into the attic, and her dance steps to Madonna lack the energy of better days. She hasn’t found—or forgotten—her missing son, and she’s only survived the grief thanks to her neighbor and keeper of secrets, Tara Christie. Except for Ginger's darkest secret of all...about what happened the night her son disappeared.
But that vow of friendship is tested when Tara is jarred awake one night by a scream coming from next-door, where she finds Ginger standing over a dead body. Even stranger, Tara’s husband is nowhere to be found.
As the investigation shakes their small town of Bloodson Bay to its core, and Tara’s husband is arrested for the murder, Tara must choose between proving her husband’s innocence or protecting Ginger’s past.
Little does she know they're about to stumble down a twisty path that could destroy them all.
A snappily-paced thriller packed with humor, a chilling murder mystery, a dollop of family drama, and an ode to the bond of friendship.
