Valerie Urniak is a hairdresser with a difference. She can shrink your head as well as style your hair.
Valerie gave up a promising career as a psychologist to return to the vocation that put her through school. Hairdressing allowed her to help people in a truly hands-on manner.
Within a period of three weeks, three of her clients die. Only one is a natural death.
One is a suicide. Valerie cannot accept that she did not recognize the depths of her client's depression. Nor can she shake the feeling that there is a connection between that suicide and another client's murder.
Her penchant for hands-on work leads her to conduct her own investigation much to the displeasure of the detective working the cases. And they both learn that sometimes displeasure can turn into something else...
