As Husbands Go

Susan Isaacs' latest murder mystery could be the perfect summer read.

Susan Isaacs came up with a winning formula in Compromising Positions (1978), and she has largely stuck to it ever since:

Take a savvy, sharp-tongued woman…

…give her a mystery to solve…

…then turn her loose to wisecrack her way through a roster of entitled suspects and none-too-bright investigators, the latter upstaged when our heroine exposes the guilty party.

Though Isaacs has made forays into family saga (Red, White, and Blue, 1998) and historical fiction (Shining Through, 1988), her fans have been happiest when she stays close to her home turf among New York's privileged classes. She does just that in her latest novel, As Husbands Go, a lightweight adventure that makes a perfect summer read—so long as you find her narrator amusing rather than annoying.
