Compromising Positions

by Susan Isaacs

Allen Lane, Penguin Books, 1978, [First Edition], ISBN 071391176X, hardcover, dust-jacket

Near Fine Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, no inscriptions, trifle dusty top fore edge, dust-jacket shows a little edge and shelf wear with a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners (see photographs)

“Judith Singer is, on her own admission, big-breasted, long-legged, not perfect you understand, but not bad. (She was a student of American Government for nine years and always meant to complete her dissertation.)  She married Bob instead; he was the ‘sensitive’ Singer, too pure to join the family firm.  Two months later, irretrievably sullied, Bon is claimed by mammon and family.  It’s not too bad a fate – 80,000 dollars a year, a shimmering, green bathroom ‘with all the options’ and only a little fat round the waist.

Our heroine’s mind has refused to dim with age or affluence, or bow under the twin yoke of motherhood and fidelity; and when the local dentist is found dead and the whispers whisper of pornographic photos (and they do seem to feature some surprising people), ‘Judith perks up.  She develops a taste for police work and for gazing into the big, soft, liquid brown eyes of Lieutenant Sharpe; and she is dangerously good at both.”
