Description

Susie B. Anthony Rabinowitz Gersten assumed her marriage was great--and why not? Jonah Gersten, MD, a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, clearly adored her. He was handsome, successful, and a doting dad to their four-year-old triplets. So when Jonah is found dead in the Upper East Side apartment of a second-rate "escort," Susie is overwhelmed with questions. It's bad enough to know your husband's been murdered, but even worse when you're universally pitied (and quietly mocked) because of the sleaze factor. None of it makes sense to Susie--not a sexual liaison with someone like Dorinda, nor the "better not to discuss it" response from Jonah's partners. With help from her tough-talking, high-style Grandma Ethel, Susie takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband's partners, the NYPD, and the DA as she tries to prove that her wonderful life with Jonah was no lie.

A rare mix of wit, social satire, suspense, and a moving story about a love that just won't give up, As Husbands Go 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.

Susan B. Anthony Rabinowitz Gersten assumed her marriage was great—and why not? Jonah Gersten, M.D., a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, clearly adored her.
