The life of Aaron Tucker freelance writer and stayathome dad is anything but boring. In fact, Aaron manages to find himself in way more danger than your typical mildmannered Jewish guy. He lands in a murder investigation when a leading conservative politician is found dead in his DC hotel room, discovered by his mistress after her long postcoital shower. She (a former object of Aaron's affection) asks Aaron to find the killer. Aaron doesn't see himself as an investigating genius but he takes the assignment, which doesn't sit well with his family.
