Nina finds herself investigating the suspicious death of the primary executor to her mother's best friend's will, and what she finds are some very un-kosher goings-on.

Wow. Awful! One of the worst books I've ever read. A friend gave me this book because I like: witty murder mysteries. This does not qualify. To add further insult to injury it seems that no one proof read this book: ever! The number of typos and grammatical errors makes some paragraphs nearly impossible to read as all I could focus on was the errors rather than the plot. Epic fail.

Again, lots of fun; this accidental detective is more intent on finding a husband than finding the killer. She's the epitome of a housing court attorney, Jewish, single woman in her 30s in NYC. What could be more fun?

Writer's style is flowing, self-analytic and funny though full of Jewism so a person like me who hasn't experienced Jewish community up-close cannot really connect. A bit too much New York defense-cum-bashing but overall not a bad time killer.

“It often struck Nina that women who seemed capable of only limited mental tasks in most situations could retain information regarding other peoples weight for years, sometimes decades. Unlike genuine idiots savants, they couldn't tell you that December 13, 1972 had fallen on a Wednesday. But they could often tell you, within a pound or two, how much you'd weighed that week.” 4 likes
“Ida was a natural historian who knew how to throw in enough fiction to keep up dramtic tension. And she was replete with details, like a big fat colorful nineteenth-century historical novel, inching forward slowly....Ida's narrative line, like her waistline, was ample.” 1 likes
