A mystery not just Moms will love!

After the death of his wife, New York City detective Dave heads west to the small town Mesa Grande, Colorado, and takes a job as Chief Investigator for the Public Defender. When a rivalry between two professors at the nearby college reaches a deadly level, it is with the help of his visiting Mom -- a wise, tough, shrewd Jewish New Yorker -- that Dave untangles a complex puzzle that leaves everyone, except Mom, guessing.

"Yaffe presents a winner here: a skillfully wrought and finely detailed case full of twists, theorizings, and more twists. Wry, down-to-earth, and satisfying." - Library Journal
