From the Publisher:
Long Island housewife Judith Singer is incredibly bored. So when a local dentist is found murdered and the police suspect her neighbor, that's all the excuse Judith needs to jump in and begin her own investigation. In between school runs and making dinner, she is drawn deeper into the case-and closer to the police detective in charge.
Reared primarily in Queens and Brooklyn, Isaacs attended Queens College before taking a position as an editor at "Seventeen" magazine. In the early 1970s, she worked as a speechwriter for several politicians including New York City mayor John Lindsay. After marrying Elkan Abramowitz (who gained his own prominence as the attorney who defended Woody Allen against charges of child abuse in 1992), Isaacs decided to write a mystery while caring for their two small children. Her first book, "Compromising Positions," was published in 1978, and she has published many novels since then. She maintains homes in Sands Point and Bridgehampton, Long Island.
