Women's Lib didn't come soon enough

Title: Die Laughing
Author: Carola Dunn

Daisy is now married to Alec and step-mother to his daughter Belinda; his mom is a typical evil mother-in-law. She goes to the dentist and he's dead in the chair, supposedly from laughing gas. He was killed by his wife's lover or something; I didn't really enjoy the book overall because Alec is too controlling and dismissive all the time - even if it's the 1920's and theoretically accurate, I don't like the treatment of women here (who apparently aren't allowed to be police or have opinions).
