Single mom Emily Locke has relocated to Houston to work part-time for her private investigator friend, Richard Cole. It's a nice balance between work and family until she learns out she's working for the attorney who defended her husband's killer.
The client, socialite Claire Gaston, awaits trial for the murder of a local plastic surgeon. Claire has been leading a wildly unconventional life. Should she be condemned for bad choices? Emily, haunted by her own, doesn't think so.
Then a mysterious note takes her undercover at a high-brow ladies' health club where Emily finds a surreal fitness subculture where things-and people-are seldom what they seem. At this gym, "killer workout" takes on a whole new meaning.
