After a career fighting crime, six little words still have the power to strike fear in the heart of a retired cop: the sleep-over is at your house.
Once the jump-rope queen of Cincinnati, Rocky Zacharias is now an ex-convict with kids of her own and a dangerous secret. And she’s disappeared, leaving behind a cryptic call for help. With Rocky and her kids in the path of a killer, detective-in-training Cat Caliban and retired juvenile officer Moses Fogg decide that the clue to Rocky’s danger may be locked up behind the razor wire of the Women’s Correctional Institution, so Cat goes inside to learn the truth before someone puts Rocky six feet under — and before Cat and Moses send Rocky’s kids into Time Out and throw away the key.

—“It was amazing . . . . One of my favourite things about this series is how Borton incorporates social issues in the plot . . . . I learnt something new about the real world after reading this book, something I can’t often say about cozies.”
