About the Book

Now, Dorothy Cannell, award-winning author of Femmes Fatal and the beloved The Thin Woman, serves up the ubiquitous mother-in-law joke family style—with death for the punch line...HOW TO MURDER YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW

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 from 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 soupcon of poison here, a broken brake line there. All very therapeutic and no harm intended. At least, that's what Ellie thinks...until one mum-in-law meets a premature end and another has a very close call. Now Ellie must find the mother-in-law of all killers—before her own sweet Magdalene ends up on ice, and the blame is laid at Ellie's door.
