Overview

Nina Fischman's back - with a boyfriend! It's about time. She's pushing forty and he's willing to pick the poppy seeds out of her teeth. So what if he's a murder suspect for the second time since she's known him. So what if he lives in a low-IQ luxury high-rise in the East Eighties instead of the Upper West Side. She's not moving in - yet. The real problem is: What is Jonathan going to do now that the doorman who parked his car is dead? The police have temporarily solved the problem. They've removed the corpse and impounded the vehicle....

Nina Fischman's boyfriend Jonathan has been a murder suspect ever since his doorman was blown away sitting behind the wheel of Jonathan's car. Nina can't believe her good luck--now she has an easy excuse not to deal with the issue of moving in with Jonathan. And she can't resist getting involved in a murder case.

Editorial Reviews

Jewish Book World
Fifth in a series of mysteries with a New York setting and an irreverent tone. Written by a woman lawyer who handles her clues effortlessly.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Quintessential New Yorker, lawyer Nina Fischman, last seen in Close Quarters, pursues another murder investigation in her fifth appearance. Her boyfriend Jonathan becomes a suspect in the death of his doorman, who was murdered while moving Jonathan's car to comply with the city's arcane parking regulations. While using the investigation as distraction from such personal issues as whether she should leave her beloved West Side to move in with Jonathan in his charmless East Side high-rise, Nina, aided by her mother, Ida, uncovers a pimping operation operated by Mundo,the mailman who delivers to Jonathan's building. City politics enters the plot when Nina and Ida suspect that a high-ranking official may be be stalking one of Mundo's girls. Nina applies for a job in the politician's office, receives a marriage proposal, brokered by an unexpected source, and news that if her romance is to bloom, it may have to be somewhere well west of the Hudson. Piesman's smart, frenetic Jewish-lawyer heroine can be very funny, but her urban, single-woman crises have a one-note quality and finally overburden this plot, which descends to an anticlimactic close.
