Houston PI Corie McKenna thinks her new case is a routine nasty divorce with a philandering husband duking it out with his wife, owner of a swanky spa, Serenity in the City. The spa owner wants her husband out of her life pronto. Not that difficult ordinarily, except the husband dodges being served with divorce papers. When Corie catches up with the him, her problems are just beginning. For a spa hair stylist, her final cut of the day turns out to be her final cut - ever. Shortly after the body is found, the husband disappears with far more than his share of the community property. Corie's socialite mother may be happy to pay mega bucks for mud facials while wading knee-deep in gossip, but Serenity in the City spa is the last place Corie wants to hang out. Unfortunately, the stylist's death means Corie has more than a professional obligation to investigate - she wants to keep her mother safe, too. While searching for the missing husband and trying to keep an eye on her mother's safety, Corie reluctantly becomes a spa patron. To her surprise, the spa clients like to chitchat not about the stylist's death, but something even closer to home: a rash of burglaries hitting area residents. Unknown to Corie, every step she takes brings her closer to the killer. Even the spa's most calming aromatherapy can't help her when she might become the next victim of a killer with more in mind than massages and haircuts.
