What do knitters Permelia O’Brien and Betty Fitzandreu have in common besides a love of knitting? Both have been betrayed by their husbands. Permelia moved to town when her husband left her for a much younger woman. Her new apartment is over the town morgue and when she finds Betty’s husband’s hat in the parking lot after Ed Anderson’s body is brought in it quickly becomes clear that Betty’s husband wasn’t just cheating with another woman. He had a whole other family.
Still, that doesn’t explain why someone murdered him, and as Permelia and her new friends dig deeper into the mystery, it becomes clear the killer isn’t finished yet.
