AS HUSBANDS GO by Susan Isaacs (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Susie B. Anthony Rabinowitz Gersten assumed her marriage was great—and why not? Jonah Gersten, M.D., a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, clearly adored her. He was handsome, successful, and a doting dad. So when Jonah is found dead in the Upper East Side apartment of a second-rate "escort," Susie is overwhelmed with questions. With help from her tough-talking, high-style Grandma Ethel, Susie takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's medical partners, the NYPD, and the DA as she tries to prove that her wonderful life with Jonah was no lie. Susan Isaacs brilliantly turns the conventions of the mystery on end as Susie Gersten—suburban mom, floral designer, and fashion plate—searches not so much for answers to her husband's death as for answers to her own life.
