Rate this:
Brash, bold and funny ("Susan Isaacs goes Canadian", said Kirkus Reviews) Barbara Simons returns in another murder investigation that proves that some people's relations are just as dangerous as Barbara's friends. From Old Montreal jazz clubs to the homes of a powerful WASP enclave, Simons tries to use her brains to figure out whodun in her old boss, rather than risk further damage to her clothing and body...not always with great success.
