The blurb says: "Hoping to start her life over in the Berkshires with her baby daughter, Elizabeth Halperin becomes a prime murder suspect when her womanizing ex-husband is killed at a lavish Halloween party."

This is one of the most tongue in cheek takes on suburban Mommy culture I've ever read. The descriptions of the play group organized by upscale suburban moms and how they organize and use the talents they had before becoming Stepford Moms to help one of their own are priceless.
