Four new friends. Four dead bodies. One big problem . . .

In this darkly funny story with a big heart, meet the four women who have two things in common- 1) they were all pushed too far in their abusive relationships, and 2) they all have a corpse to dispose of...

Sally never meant to cave her husband's head in with a skillet. Or at least she didn't until suddenly, she did.

But Sally isn't the only woman in town reaching breaking point. When coincidence brings four strangers together, a surprising friendship is formed.

So can they find the best way to bury their husbands - and get away with it?
