"Because I'm your wife, that's what I'm for. Remember?"
It wasn't so very long ago that Mindy O'Dell had it all. In addition to being the wife of a loving husband and prominent Hearst College executive, she was also a mother, a step-mother, and a damn fine cook. Oh, and a bit of a philanderer. One might argue that Mrs. O'Dell was merely helping to foster administration/faculty relations by awarding a certain Criminology professor tenure between her legs.
But now the jig is up. Exposed as an adulteress, Mindy has been left widowed and penniless (her cuckolded husband's death ruled a suicide). She's turned to the best private dick in town in hopes of uncovering some foul play in her husband's death. Yet she failed to mention that she (and her Volvo) may have been on the scene that fateful night. What's more, she probably lied about that important detail when questioned. She's raising two boys on her own, struggling with the bills, and dealing with an angry, possibly drugged-out ex-husband who is demanding his payday. And things never seem to end well for the trophy brides of Neptune, do they?
