"Compromising Positions" was a very funny & entertaining book. I truly enjoyed it.
I felt the plot became a bit unbelievable though, but Isaacs' humor and writing style carried me through-enough so, that I ordered its sequel,"Long Time No See" from another paperbackswap member.

"An impeccably constructed mystery. Wickedly subversive wit and a cracle of one-liners. Great fun" Cosmopolitan

Unhappy, bored wife finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. Similar to many plottings--but well-written

A light hearted look at a neighbor murder. Sort of a "Desperate Housewives" before there was a "Desperate Housewives".

Judith Singer, the protagonist of Compromising Positions, is intelligent, brash and witty. But she is trapped by her lifestyle in Shorehaven ("minutes from Fitzgerald's East Egg"); a stuffy husband ("Judith, don't tell me you haven't gained weight. I can see it in your waist.") demanding children ("I hate her peanut butter. It's the smooth kind.") and a stultifying suburban home ("two weeks of accumulated laundry").

When Dr. Bruce Fleckstein, a local periodontist and notorious stud, is found murdered, Judith's life takes an interesting turn- and is infused with a sense of purpose.

As they would murmur at his funeral, Dr. M. Bruce Flecksten was ne of the finest periodontists on Long Island. And so good-looking. But as he turned his muscular, white-coated back for the last time, he had no notion that he had shot his final wad of Novocaine, probed his ultimate gum.

This is a very fun read. Susan Isaacs does an excellent job of creating realistic characters although hers tend to be more than a bit on the whiny side. Still, a very enjoyable read.
