A Small Indiscretion by Denise Rudberg translated by Laura Wideberg read by Joyce Bean

A well upholstered, crisply intelligent middle aged police inspector newly widowed from her faithless, politically agile husband, is called back to work after many years. She colors her hair, tries to eat less, and reconnoitres her domestic life across and through the  investigation of a murder, the enmity of the young office bitches,  the appreciation of her male colleagues, and the sideline of society parties and friendships accompanying her old world inherited wealth.
