At a self-defense class she's arranged for women in the neighborhood, Charlie Plato finally finds a stylist who promises to tame her hair. And what happens? The pretty Filipina gets murdered and the husband she'd accused of spousal abuse is looking like the number one suspect.

But Thane Stockton swears he didn't kill his wife and Charlie sets out, with sidekick Zack, to find out if he's telling the truth. On the way to a conclusion the story includes a very nice homeless man, a bride ordered off the Internet, a case of agoraphobia and of course, a little line-dancing. Once again, Charlie gets herself into a sticky situation that could easily prove fatal, and this time Zack isn't around to rush to her rescue.
