Aaron Tucker isn’t a detective. An aspiring screenwriter, freelance reporter, stay-at-home dad, and expert on consumer electronics, Aaron actually defies all traditional characteristics of a detective. He’s 5’4,”” and weighs less than Robert B. Parker’s leather jacket. And he doesn’t have any investigative training. But he’s funny, down-to-earth, lovable, and resourceful. He has good and loyal friends, like Jeff Mahoney, the huge rental car mechanic who helps him out of tight situations, and Abigail Stein, his sexy wife, who happens to be a successful criminal lawyer, and whose advice comes in handy a time or two. So he’s baffled when the richest guy in his New Jersey town, Gary Beckwirth, insists that Aaron, and Aaron alone, investigate the disappearance of his wife, Mary Beckwirth, who has inexplicably vanished from their home in the middle of the night. Aaron refuses Gary’s desperate pleas, but once the editor of the town newspaper offers Aaron $1000 to write the story on Mary’s disappearance, Aaron finds himself agreeing to investigate, despite his lack of investigative reporting experience. When the disappearance becomes a murder, he has no choice but to keep investigating, no matter how unqualified he may be.
