Professional hair stylist and amateur sleuth Marla Shore lands a case close to home when her pet-loving neighbor-a man aptly named Goat-disappears, leaving his animals alone and a dead body in the master bedroom. The corpse might be just another anonymous stiff except for the distinctive bronze highlighting in his hair. Marla-on the scene and ready for anything-immediately recognizes the signature technique of the Heavenly Hair Salon in Fort Lauderdale and the work of stylist Cutter Corrigan. Curiosity is part of Marla's motive in deciding to help ID the dead man by questioning the proprietor of Heavenly Hair before the police do. But a powerful physical attraction to sexy Detective Dalton Vail is a major factor in her effort to impress him with her sleuthing skills. And before she even leaves the murder scene, Marla makes another grisly discovery that suggests the killing involves the exotic pet trade, where fancy fur coats are illegally made from local Tabbies and Rovers. How could gentle Goat be involved in that? Outraged and upset, Marla vows to use her contacts in the salon biz to find out the truth. Soon her unofficial questioning of other area hairdressers turns up a surprising link between Goat, the victim, and her own past. The long and short of it is danger for Marla, as she gets closer to uncovering a hair-raising secret someone would kill to keep.
