When Carole goes for a hair trim at 'Connie's Clip Joint', she doesn't expect to find herself at the scene of a murder. But sure enough in the backroom, strangled by the lead of a hairdryer, sits Connie's young assistant Kyra. Whilst Carole and her sleuthing friend Jude enjoy some tactical snooping, Fethering fingers are pointing firmly at Kyra's boyfriend, Nathan, who has disappeared. But Nathan's family are also acting rather oddly - whilst convinced of Nathan's innocence, they don't seem so certain that he is actually missing. Meanwhile Connie's ex-husband Martin, co-owner of the rival hairdressing chain 'Martin & Martina', appears to have been quite the ladies man with his young assistants, including Kyra herself. Could he have silenced her before she divulged his sordid secret and potentially ruined his career? As our discreet lady detectives decide there are only so many haircuts they can have for the sake of neighbourhood crime solving, so too do they realise this is no cut and dry case, and that some people will stop at nothing to keep their private lives concealed . . .

The author manages sweet and cynical at the same time. The gay hairdresser has a dark secret!
