Summary (From the publisher):

When Alexandra returns from her stint on the London stage to find her husband mysteriously dead of a heart attack and her female friends ominously invested in smoothing out all the complications of the tragedy, she begins to be suspicious. At first she attributes this to grief, then to paranoia. But she soon finds herself starting to crack, crank-calling her friends' psychiatrist, attacking people with kitchen chairs and breaking into their house, searching furiously for evidence to confirm her husband's rampant adultery and her own worst fears.

Blurbs:
  • "A snappy whodunit of the heart...one of Weldon's best novels yet." The New York Times Book Review
  • "With a dash of murder mystery and a wink at Ibsen's grim tales of ruined marriages, this splendid and spiteful novel shows Fay Weldon to be in as fine form as ever." The Philadelphia Inquirer
  • "A hundred years hence, if people can still read, Weldon's books will likely have the unblunted edge of Jane Austen, an unsentimental Baedeker guide to sexual manners in an ill-mannered age. Fay Weldon breaks taboos like tape at a marathon, and she hasn't stopped running yet." Los Angeles Times
  • "A web of humor and horror, humiliation and revenge, that's not to be missed." Library Journal
