Mood swings aren't the only hormonal hotspots in Bel Barrett's midlife -- now she's having a religious identity crisis...and a dose of Jewish guilt to boot! The fifty-something New Jersey community college professor never dreamed she'd run into former student Ashley Roberts -- a young woman she once may have wronged -- in a study group at her synagogue. So when the "accidental" death of a close colleague leaves Ashley distraught, Bel feels compelled to investigate the tragedy. But her good intentions land her in a wildworld of corporate espionage, dangerous personal and professional practices, and old-fashioned chicanery at a new internet company. When she realizes that a fatal indoor rock climbing "mishap" was really a murder, Bel's suddenly snarled in a deadly web that will take a Solomon to untangle...and a Samson to survive.
