Susan Moore is about to hire the wrong man to investigate her philandering husband, Will. There's something not quite right about that detective, but he's all she has at the moment.
"Warren Lane" drinks too much and has a hard time staying out of trouble. He's just the kind of guy Will's mistress can't resist. And everyone is starting to figure out that Will is hiding a lot more than his affair with a reckless young woman.

In Diamond's debut, a random series of events leads to five adrift people tangled up in each other's lives, with sometimes-disastrous consequences. Susan Moore, Will Moore, Mark Ready, and Ella Weyland are all lost... When a mix-up leads Susan to accidentally hire Mark to investigate her husband instead of Warren, events begin a downward spiral... These encounters with pain, hope, and loss make the book engaging. Almost every reader will relate in some way to the protagonists' sense of being adrift and unsure of where to go. -- Kirkus Reviews
