After a sudden fire almost burns down one of their units, neighbors Wanda Lindstrom, Charlotte Murray, and Marcy Seele are thrust into immediate turmoil. But the trauma only worsens when a brutal murder is discovered within the ashes. As details of the homicide unfold, white nationalism and the various relationships to this controversial victim intertwine, heightening the women's complicated reactions. Wanda's hidden identity as a Jew and Marcy's decision to convert to Judaism cause an unstated terror to build as they each confront their underlying fears. Meanwhile, Charlotte's assumed ties to neo-Nazism and well-documented criminal background help make her a prime suspect, an automatic label she's powerless to overcome. Told from the women's vastly different perspectives, Detached explores an emotional fusion of their guilt, apprehension, and anger. While they each lead very separate lives, Wanda, Charlotte, and Marcy find themselves attached to each other in complex ways over the course of an unpredictable murder investigation.
