About the Author
SUSAN ISAACS is the author of thirteen novels,
including Takes One to Know One, As Husbands Go, Long Time
No See
, Any Place I Hang My Hat and Compromising
. A recipient of the Writers for Writers Award and the John
Steinbeck Award, Isaacs serves as chairman of the board of Poets & Writers,
and is a past president of Mystery Writers of America. Her fiction has been
translated into 30 languages. She lives on Long Island with her husband.
"Susan Isaacs has spent her career writing about what she
once characterized as "brave dames" assertive, self-possessed women -- sometimes
saddled with a neurosis or two -- who were fulfilled by marriage and family but
hardly defined by them, and who had a natural ability to solve murders... The
thoroughly enjoyable plot brims with misdirection and red herrings. And like
other Isaacs characters, Corie Geller is wonderful company for the reader." --Sarah Weinman, New York Times"Offbeat characters, witty narration, and a winsome
father-daughter dynamic complement Isaacs's clever if madcap plot. Fans of
breezy suspense will be delighted."--Publishers Weekly"As a narrator, [Corie] is a formidable raconteur, as
generous with details as Proust, as full of anecdote as a suburban
Scheherazade. She and her father make a good team, pooling resources and
pulling in a host of ex-colleagues and guest experts to assist them. They need
all the help they can get to combat a most determined villain and save their
brave and endearing client." --Wall Street JournalPraise for Susan Isaacs:

"I can think of no other novelist--popular or highbrow--who
consistently celebrates female gutsiness, brains and sexuality. She's Jane
Austen with a schmear." --NPR's Fresh Air

"A witty, wry observer of contemporary life." --The Washington Post

"Nobody does smart, gutsy, funny, sexy women
better than Susan Isaacs." --The
Washington Post

"The women who
inhabit Isaacs' books are smart, sexy, a little snarky, and filled with some
serious chutzpah." --Rachel Martin NPR's Weekend Edition

"Ms. Isaacs is a witty author, but comedy gives way to
terror as Corie's inevitable confrontation with her dangerous quarry nears. All
the foreshadowing and presaging pays off in spades, and the scenes that tie up
loose ends are a pleasure to read."--Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"What is it that makes Susan Isaacs' books so delicious to
read? She's funny, for starters. And that humor combined with romance and
old-fashioned murder mystery tickles every feel-good bone in our bodies. Her
characters are whole and flawed and lovable, and you want only the best for
them, even as you ardently wish to find them in danger -- repeatedly -- along the
way."--New York Newsday

"There are so many layers -- and thrilling twists and turns --
that you won't want to put it down."--InTouch
