Nina Fischman, the Upper West Side's savviest and funniest Jewish lawyer is back from California and another failed relationship to start anew. But before she can unpack her bags, another murder crosses her path, and Nina, along with her mother-cum-sidekick sleuth, can't keep her nose out of trouble for too long. To further complicate matters, one of the suspects in the poisoning of the dead scientist is Nina's brother-in-law, Ken, the dermatologist. With the ruse of writing an exposÄ for The New Yorker, Nina comes across everyone from the striking Roz Brillstein, the widow, to the handsome, horselike director of S.P.A.S.M., a staunch animal activist group, to the scientists who discovered Leptin (the "fat mouse gene"). So whodunit? Nina's brother-in-law? The dead man's wife? The animal activist? Or any other suspect? Watch as Nina brilliantly--and hilariously--figures it out.
