Defending a stay-at-home mother of three who is accused of murdering a feminist school principal, Kit Deleeuw finds the community, his wife, and the chief of police in an uproar about his participation in what becomes a controversial case

Blackwell North Amer
Shelly Bloomfield is not one of those women who try to have it all. An outspoken advocate of mothers staying at home to raise their families, she spends hours chauffeuring her three children around suburban Rochambeau, New Jersey, and proudly calls herself "The Last Housewife." When an equally outspoken feminist becomes principal of the town's middle school and accuses Shelly's son of sexual harassment, the resulting confrontation is explosive.
But that's nothing compared to the child-centered community's stunned reaction when the principal is found shot to death and Shelly Bloomfield is accused of her murder. Desperate and proclaiming her innocence, Shelly turns to Kit Deleeuw, nicknamed "The Suburban Detective" after two spectacular and well-publicized successes in his relatively new career as a private investigator.
