The new Mommy Track Mystery from the national bestselling author of Murder Plays House.

Ayelet Waldman's one-of-kind sleuth tracks the mysterious whereabouts of a missing infant to a widespread, top-secret puzzle that's nothing to play with.

Baker & Taylor
Married, mother-of-two sleuth Juliet Applebaum gets more than she bargained for when she is hired by Sandra Lorgeree, an inmate at Dartmore State Prison, to find the child she had surrendered to foster care and his missing foster parents, but her case takes a bizarre turn when her client is knifed to death in prison.

Blackwell North Amer
The investigative business is booming for Juliet Applebaum and her partner Al, but their new client, incarcerated in Dartmore State Prison, is going to be a real challenge. Sandra Lorgeree has enlisted Juliet to locate the son she surrendered to foster care - as well as the foster parents who seem to have disappeared with him. But Juliet's new case takes a deadly detour when the desperate young mother is knifed to death - allegedly by another inmate.
Prison officials dismiss the murder as just one more fatality in lockdown. Juliet has her doubts. Now Juliet is determined to make Sandra's last wish come true. Even if it means tracking little Noah - and the killer - through the dark maze of a widespread conspiracy. And even if it winds up pitting her against some very wealthy, powerful, and dangerous enemies.

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
