The Late, Lamented Molly Marx - Sally Koslow (2009)

Molly Marx has been found dead along the bank of the Hudson River but no one knows who did it, not even the police. Narrated from Molly's perspective from the afterlife, details are gradually revealed about the various events that lead to her death, including her marriage breakdown with her philandering plastic surgeon husband Barry; the difficult relationship with her mean mother-in-law Kitty; and her little romance with photographer Luke. Even though the plot centres on Molly's death, and the possible suspects, the story also depicts through flashbacks the tight friendship of Molly and Brie, and strong love shared with her sister Lucy and her young daughter Annabel. With its perfect combination of mystery, love and family connections, this is a moving and memorable book. (XT)
