From the national bestselling author of Murder Plays House .

For private-eye-cum-supermom Juliet Applebaum, business is booming. But there are pros and cons to every assignment. And the con in her latest job is her client, an inmate at Dartmore Prison. She's enlisted Juliet to locate the son she surrendered--as well as the foster parents who've disappeared with him. But this case takes a deadly detour when the desperate young mother is fatally stabbed--allegedly by another inmate.

Prison officials dismiss the murder as just one more fatality in lockdown. But Juliet has her doubts. Now she's determined to make the woman's last wish come true, even if it means tracking little Noah--and the killer--through the dark maze of a widespread conspiracy.

This is the sixth in the author's Mommy-Track mystery series, which I have been binge-reading. I loved the first four books in the series. I thought the fifth one was not quite as good as the first four, but only because Ms. Waldman set such high standards with the first four. Anyway, I thought this book (The Cradle Robbers), the sixth book in the series, was better than the fifth one in the series (Murder Plays House), although I certainly would recommend the fifth. (Multnomah County Library does not have Murder Plays House, so I had to order it through inter-library loan.

mommy-track murder mysteries, very enjoyable
