When Kinsey Millhone answers her office door late one night,
she lets in more darkness than she realizes.
Janice Kepler is a grieving mother who can't let the death
of her beautiful daughter Lorna alone. The police agree that
Lorna was murdered, but a suspect was never apprehended and
the trail is now ten months cold. Kinsey pieces together
Lorna's young life: a dull day job a the local water
treatment plant spiced by sidelines in prostitution and
pornography. She tangles with Lorna's friends: a local
late-night DJ; a sweet, funny teenaged hooker; Lorna's
sloppy landlord and his exotic wife. But to find out which
one, if any, turned killer, Kinsey will have to inhabit a
netherworld from which she may never return.
