Overview

Compromising Positions’s Judith Singer is back in a story that delivers plenty of Susan Isaacs’s renowned wit and sharp-eyed observations of the contemporary scene—along with a riveting mystery!
Chic Vanessa Giddings, founder and CEO of Panache, the largest employment agency on Long Island, falls into a coma in the designer shoe department of Bloomingdale’s . . . and dies. It’s not long before Judith Singer, former housewife, current widow, and local history professor, decides to investigate. She cannot believe the official ruling: that her wildly successful, confident, and iron-willed neighbor committed suicide with a drug overdose. Vanessa was buying shoes, and Judith knows accessorizing is a life-affirming act. So was it foul play?
Tracking the gossip about the late Vanessa and trusting her own acute instincts about human nature, Judith encounters more than a few surprises (including a big romantic one) as she investigates the death—and the life—of the misjudged mogul who turned out to have been more vulnerable than anyone guessed.
This ebook features an afterword by Susan Isaacs, as well as an illustrated biography of the author including rare images from her personal collection.
