Carlene's death by a hit-and-run driver prompts one of the sister-owners of the day care to hire Dick to look into the death, which she suspects was not accidental.
The reader follows Dick through a maze of suspects--the other owner-sister of the day care, Carlene's angry ex-partner, and a very dysfunctional mother and son (Kelly's father).
