But just as his luck seems about to change, the rich, gifted and urbane filmmaker Sy Spencer is murdered, and Brady discovers that his prime suspect is a woman he and the victim shared.

Susan Isaacs's newest novel since bestsellers Almost Paradise and Shining Through is a book that snaps with intelligence and style, a whodunit that sizzles with suspense and a romance that ignites with desire. Magic Hour is magic.« less
