Overview

Do you ever really know who your friends are? Bonded by divorce, Mona Sterling and Kate have become fast friends. But while Mona has hit the divorce settlement jackpot, Kate has to support herself and her five-year-old daughter with her burgeoning new career as an art consultant. Still, her scattershot life in the upscale California suburbs shows promise: Her divorce is in its final stages, handsome homicide detective Michael Stone is hinting about commitment, and Mona has called upon Kate to spruce up her newly bare walls with artwork. But the scheme is short-circuited when Kate arrives at Mona's house to find her friend stone-cold dead in the den. A bottle of expensive scotch and an empty vial of sleeping pills convince police that it's an open-and-shut case of suicide. But Kate isn't buying. For one thing, Mona had just rescheduled a tennis date. For another, she only drank gin. A troubled teenager and her surly biker boyfriend, a faithless husband and his suspicious wife, and a mysterious stranger plying kids with candy on the schoolgrounds are just a few who figure into Kate's laundry list of suspects. When a second body turns up, even Michael has to agree that it's beginning to look a lot like murder.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The everyday life of a prosperous California suburb takes on livelier aspects when Kate Austen visits a neighbor, wealthy divorce Mona Sterling, and finds the woman dead, apparently a suicide. The almost-divorced Kate, last seen in Murder Among Neighbors, and her friend Sharon Covington, convinced that Mona-flush with financial victory after a messy divorce-would not have taken her own life, start their own investigation, to the express disapproval of Kate's love interest, Lt. Michael Stone of the Walnut Hills' police. Not only does Kate have to cope with her fledgling art consultancy, her five-year-old daughter, Anna, and her feckless soon-to-be ex-husband, Andy, but she also has temporary custody of Mona's sullen and rebellious teenage daughter, Libby, who fiercely resents her father and his new trophy fiance. The mysterious death of Libby's unsuitable boyfriend and an attack on Kate's car keep Kate on her detecting track. Jacobs's domestic tale takes a few well-aimed jabs at suburban life but carries little impact in its character or plot development. (Aug.)
