While taking his three-year-old son on an evening stroll in the park, stock analyst Skip Lowe is gunned down by someone familiar to him. While the police are investigating the shooting, Paloma Renzi, the mother of another toddler, is gunned down under similar circumstances. Detectives find a professional connection between the two victims, but a third murder victim with a three-year-old, Denise (who turns out to have actually been the first one killed) seems to have no connection to Skip and Paloma, until Goren and Eames discover that all three children have the same preschool in common. When the frightening motive of a parent murdering other parents to move their child up the waiting list, and into the exclusive Carnegie Hill Day, becomes apparent, they race to zero in on the killer.

Marla? That woman is pure white trash
3 October 2017 | by Mrpalli77See all my reviews

Two Wall Street analysts (a man and a woman) are killed in no time by a old-fashioned gun from a close range. They both used to hang out in the park with their newborn children and none of them seemed to have issues at home. Actually the man used to hook up with males in his lunch break, but it's not the right pattern. Then a third death person is connected to the murders: she was shot dead weeks before by the same weapon and she has a toddler as well. She wasn't a wealthy person, working as a cook in soup kitchen, but a recommendation letter written by the church linked his son to the other babies and detectives soon narrow it down to a preschool waiting list. But the perp is not what it seems.

I didn't know there's so much competition between rich parents to admit children in a KINDERGARTEN. "A gateway to the Ivy League"? I don't really believe.
