Teaming up with his quirky ex-wife, Sharon, and genius teen hacker, Dexter, Mike finds himself pulled into the glitzy world of writers, agents, and obsessive fans on the hunt for Imelda's killer.

Everyone's a suspect - from Imelda's cuckolded publisher husband, the kooky married writers next door, and even the arrogant guest upstairs. The list keeps growing as secrets and lies unravel.

Can Mike crack the case before the murderer strikes again? Will his bumbling team help or hinder the investigation? Can Mike face the demons from his past before they catch up to him? And can Sharon keep a grip on her unruly dogs?
