Tensions are running high in suburban Hancock, Connecticut as the local elections approach. Series heroine Susan Henshaw finds herself right in the middle of the election excitement because her husband Jed is running for the Hancock city council. But when one of the mayoral candidates is poisoned right before giving a controversial speech, Susan dons her amateur sleuth role to help Hancock police chief Brett Fortesque solve the murder. THe author does a great job poking fun at the foibles of upper class Eastern suburbia. The mystery was a good one, too, that kept me guessing until the end.

AMONG RICH NORTHEASTERN SUBURBANITES, POLITICS CAN BE POISON. Hancock, Connecticut -- a historic enclave of wealth and conservatism -- is in the final heat of a three-way mayoral election when long-shot candidate Ivan Deakin takes a sip of cyanide-laced water and is retired to the morgue. His murder exacerbates an already fierce controversy over proposed changes in rules governing the landmark status of local real estate -- changes that would drastically alter property values. Like everyone else, amateur sleuth Susan Henshaw suspects unusually dirty politics and when her husband -- who's running for town council -- is tarred in the general smearing, Susan gets serious about finding Ivan's killer. But the possibilities are myriad, for Ivan Deakin was a political loose cannon, and the murkiness of his business deals is matched only by the notoriety of his romantic adventures....
