Movie producer Sy Spencer -- one of the premier summer residents of the Hamptons, Long Island's oh-so-fashionable beach resort for everyone who is anyone -- has hosted his last power clambake, thanks to whoever shot him dead beside his oceanfront pool.

Heading the investigation is Hamptons native Steve Brady. His prime suspect is Sy's ex-wife Bonnie, a strangely appealing and energetic woman both in and out of bed. As the case against Bonnie builds, so does Brady's obsession with her. Before long, he's laying the case and his career on the line for her, ignoring all the rules, all the evidence, and all common sense. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this a long time ago, but I've always loved Susan Isaacs. And Magic Hour is a wonderful term for the gloaming of sunrise and sunset when photos are always better -- golden light and long shadows. "

    " Another entertaining book but different than other Isaacs' books in that she writes in the voice of a male homicide detective. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 11/20/2011

    " It was a well-written mystery, but none of the characters were terribly appealing. The romance aspect was pretty much killed by how negative the male narrator was toward his love interest - physically, emotionally, verbally- criticism is not terribly romantic. "

    " This was a fun read;a comical suspense that follows the mystery of who killed Sy Spencer, the famous producer -- wife #1? wife #2? or the newest starlett who was sharing his bed? "

    " A book that - despite being published in the early 90's - just screams 80's to me. And not in a good way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 2/5/2011

    " This is a crime novel with a romantic interest. I liked the story line and characters, liked the love interest, didn't care much for the sex scenes and language that was there in places, although it wasn't as bad as most romance novels. "
