Susie B. Anthony Rabinowitz Gersten is a beautiful woman married to handsome, successful Park Avenue plastic surgeon Dr. Jonah Gersten, who clearly adores her, and their four-year-old triplets. But when Jonah's body is found in the Upper East Side apartment of "escort" Dorinda Dillon, Susie is overwhelmed. It's bad enough to know your husband's been murdered, but even worse when you're universally pitied because of the sleaze factor.

None of it makes sense to Susie. With help from her tough-talking Grandma Ethel, who flies in from Miami, she takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's partners, and the NYPD. She wants to know if the person arrested for the homicide is the actual perp, or just an easy mark for a prosecutor who hates the word "unsolved." Above all, she needs to know that her life with Jonah was no lie.

The book is written very well. Nice to read. The plot - not so interesting. Some perplexity over the descriptions of clothing and looks of characters I made such conclusions: - If you are not dressed in couture clothing and don't wear a Manolo shoes, and your car is not a convertible Jaguar - you are no one. Everyone from the circle of the protagonist are plastic surgeons, lawyers, doctors, etc., including herself, will never to wear something that is not a high brands clothes, and if someone (and the majority are) do not dress per Vogue magazine standards so as a person he/she is not worthy of attention. There some specific sarcasm from author, "social satire", as it written in the summary on back cover of the book. And it is this satire makes possible to perceive a crime with a certain ease, if I may say so. But the question remains open - For what is this parade of arrogant characters? The attempt to present Ethel, grandmother, as an interesting person, no matter of her past, is failed: an impression of her as an antipathetic character still remains.

Four hundred fifty pages of hysteria. How great is that?

I did not enjoy spending time listening to this shallow and materialistic narrator whine about her life. She has the most unobstrusive triplets in the history of single motherhood (the two au pairs and housekeeper probably help) yet is constantly complaining about her busy busy life while being sure to mention the price and provenance of every expensive item in her possession and sneering at the lesser quality items of other people. The wrong spouse got killed! Isaacs has done better in the past - I hope she will again.

The plot always seemed to be on the verge of becoming suspenseful, then it would relapse into Susie's problems. It took way too long to get around to the corpse. I found the book predictable and the character of Susie was just not one I could sympathize with. I thought from the book jacket description there would be more hands on detecting and danger. I was disappointed.
The unfinished bitterness and strain between Susie's mom and grandmom is not resolved and it suggests a sequel. I won't be reading it.
