Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller

Susan Isaacs brings her wicked wit and keen understanding of what really goes on between men and women to a very different slice of Long Island - the Hamptons.

Magic hour. That perfect time, that fleeting hour of enchanted light near dusk and dawn that is perfect for moviemaking, perfect for making love. Perfect for murder.

And into the magic hour steps Stephen Brady, wise guy, tough guy, local farm boy turned homicide cop, and a good man with a very bad life. But just as his luck is about to change, the rich, gifted, and urbane filmmaker Sy Spencer is murdered, and Brady discovers that his prime suspect is a woman he and the victim shared.

A spellbinding mystery, a scathing social satire and a poignant love story, Magic Hour looks beyond the trendy magazine-cover Hamptons' world of the summer set's high-cheekboned elegance and the locals' down-on-the-farm authenticity into the hearts of real people.

Magic Hour is the story of the treacherous murder that rocks them all and of the police detective who is too cold-hearted, too world-weary to ever fall in love - until he does.

Critic Reviews

"Isaacs spins her tale with brio, again proving herself the master of neat surprises and perceptive character portrayal." (Publishers Weekly)
