Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Former political journalist O'Brien, insider and author of The Candidate's Wife, creates a powerful circle of Washington women who investigate the supposed suicide of one of their group. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Five women, who are best friends, have met for lunch for years. All are in positions of power in Washington, D.C. Sara Webber is a Supreme Court nominee; Carol Lundgreen, a congresswoman; Faith Paige, presidential press secretary; Leona Maccoby, a caterer whose husband's financial power reaches to the White House; and Maggie Steadman, a well-known journalist. When Faith's unexpected death is revealed as a suicide, her friends are forced to examine their own lives and decisions. O'Brien spins a good tale. She certainly knows her political ins and outs, having served with the 1988 Dukakis presidential campaign and written the highly readable The Candidate's Wife (LJ 1/92). However, O'Brien's characters lack "the right stuff," for they don't have the luster and spice typically attached to well-known people. Ultimately, this lack of character depth keeps The Ladies' Lunch from being a first-rate read. Purchase according to demand.-Alice DiNizo, Raritan P.L., N.J.

    HERE'S TO THE LADIES WHO LUNCH !

    Ladies lunches have gone on for centuries - in crossroads towns and metropoles, in kitchenettes and country clubs - but, few presage the excitement found in this Washington based tale of intrigue and power. The four leading characters are strong women, firm in their friendship and, of course, firm of chin and cheekbone. They meet for a monthly lunch at Galileo's, an in Italian restaurant known as much for its politics as its pasta. Sara Marino, a Supreme Court nominee, who tilts with the President's Chief of Staff, is the group's moral and ethical compass. Journalist Maggie Stedman, a widowed mother, has left her Washington Post job in protest of what she believes. A Congresswoman and a celebrity caterer who is unhappily wed to a wolf in power broker's clothing round out the foursome. When a fifth friend, Faith, is found drowned in the Potomac, her death is called a suicide. The ladies refuse to accept this explanation, and they band together to solve the mystery of their friend's demise. Set this mystery in our nation's corridors of power, add a few ancillary counterplots, and you have a riveting Capitol crime story. - Gail Cooke
