Description
The award-winning author of Femmes Fatal and The Thin Woman serves up the ubiquitous mother-in-law joke family style­—with death for the punch line. . . . Nothing like a live-in mother-in-law to reduce a woman to the role of junior housemaid. That's what Ellie Haskell discovers when her husband's parents have a row in the midst of their anniversary dinner, and mother Magdalene seeks refuge in Ellie's guest bedroom. Suddenly Ellie is being driven round the bend by the woman's constant demands. Thank goodness for the other wives who also suffer the age-old mother-in-law curse. A chance meeting down at the Dark Horse pub finds them trading horror stories, and soon they're mixing gin and tonics with homicidal fantasies—a soupçon of poison here, a broken brake line there. All very therapeutic and no harm intended. At least, that's what Ellie thinks. . . . Praise for How to Murder Your Mother-in-Law "Vintage Cannell. . . .

Her latest Ellie Haskell adventure only enhances her reputation."Booklist "Side-splitting!"Rendezvous "Toxic and hilarious."Publishers Weekly

How to Murder Your Mother-In-Law
fullDescription
The award-winning author of Femmes Fatal and The Thin Woman serves up the ubiquitous mother-in-law joke family style­—with death for the punch line. . . .

Nothing like a live-in mother-in-law to reduce a woman to the role of junior housemaid. That's what Ellie Haskell discovers when her husband's parents have a row in the midst of their anniversary dinner, and mother Magdalene seeks refuge in Ellie's guest bedroom. Suddenly Ellie is being driven round the bend by the woman's constant demands.
Thank goodness for the other wives who also suffer the age-old mother-in-law curse. A chance meeting down at the Dark Horse pub finds them trading horror stories, and soon they're mixing gin and tonics with homicidal fantasies—a soupçon of poison here, a broken brake line there. All very therapeutic and no harm intended. At least, that's what Ellie thinks. . . .
