New York Times-bestselling author Susan Isaacs’ female protagonists are her calling card. As Rachel Martin put it on NPR’s Weekend Edition, “The women who inhabit Isaacs’ books are smart, sexy, a little snarky, and filled with some serious chutzpah.” Readers will now be thrilled by the return of two favorite characters, former FBI agent Corie Geller and her retired cop dad, in Bad, Bad Seymour Brown, in which they are tasked to solve one of the NYPD’s coldest homicide cases before the crime’s sole survivor is killed.

Susan Isaacs is the author of fourteen novels, including Takes One to Know OneAs Husbands GoLong Time No SeeAny Place I Hang My Hat and Compromising Positions. A recipient of the Writers for Writers Award and the John Steinbeck Award, Isaacs serves as chairman of the board of Poets & Writers and is a past president of Mystery Writers of America. Her fiction has been translated into 30 languages. She lives on Long Island with her husband.

Susan Isaacs feels good about ‘Bad, Bad Seymour Brown’ – Since 1978, when her debut novel, “Compromising Positions,” became a Book of the Month Club pick and soon after a bestseller, Susan Isaacs has reigned over the genre she invented — the Long Island Jewish woman’s comic thriller. You can read a Newsday profile of Susan HERE.
