Jane Stuart is a literary sleuth in the suburban village of Shady Hills who solves crimes on the side with her cat Winky.

Jane Stuart’s late husband’s cousin Stephanie now lives in Shady Hills. Stephanie has come to Shady Hills to work at Carson & Hart, the Shady Hills publishing company founded by Stephanie’s spoiled and entitled socialite friend, Faith Carson, and her husband Gavin Hart. Only a few days into her job, Stephanie notices things are not quite right at Carson & Hart. When she is found a few days later with a knife in her back, Jane goes undercover and takes a job as at Carson & Hart so she can investigate. Jane knows the truth of what happened to Stephanie is probably in the offices of Carson & Hart. Jane discovers it’s not just that Carson & Hart publishes dreck celebrity biographies. A dangerous killer lurks behind the scenes, one who may be targeting Jane and Winky next.
