Isabel is delighted with her new baby Magnus, but her toddler Charlie refuses to acknowledge his little brother. Even as she navigates this new family dynamic, Isabel's old acquaintance Bea Shandon comes to seek her help. Something of a matchmaker, Bea has introduced a wealthy female friend to a cosmetic surgeon, but then uncovered information leading Bea to doubt his motives. In this 11th philosophical investigation for Isabel (after The Novel Habits of Happiness), she agrees to find out more, but as her enquiries take an unexpected turn, she starts to wonder whom, exactly, she should be investigating.
