What goes around comes around . . .

When the body of high-priced call girl Ginger Pass is found dead on a path outside the summer retreat of the most exclusive men's club in California, the other members of her self-help group—Polly, Kat, Charlotte, Dinah, and Justine—are convinced it was foul play. Now they have to find a way to prove it.

Their amateur sleuthing leads them to a trio of rich, powerful men: a politician running on a platform of family values, a divorce lawyer with a trophy wife, and a developer with an unhealthy predilection for expensive art. Hidden behind walls of money, connections, and respectability, these men seem to be untouchable. But little do they know of the plans being set in motion to strike them where it really hurts—in the most private aspects of their lives.

Like Robin Hood's merry men, King Arthur's knights, and the Girl Scouts rolled into one, the adventurous and brave quintet of women will risk everything to bring down the men they believe caused their friend's death. The women know the consequences if they fail. But they don't count on what will happen to their lives if they succeed.

  • I got this book for my wife, she loved it and kept talking about it. Then I read it, awsome book.

  • What an enjoyable book! I didn't really know what to expect as I started reading but it was great fun and also at times thought-provoking.

    The story follows five women, members of a self-help group, who are shocked by the death of one of the members. Polly, Kate, Charlotte, Dinah and Justine believe the death was foul play and very quickly discover the three men they believe responsible. They then vow to get their revenge on these men and set about investigating their lives to find their weak spots.

    What could have been a rather distasteful concept (seeking vengeance) was actually very well written and heartwarming. The women each have different skills and influences and we watch one of them in a gentle romance and the others finding new zest for life or ideas for the future. Although I felt the characters were well written I occasionally found it difficult to distinguish between Dinah and Charlotte and I found one or two plot improbabilities a little too convenient. Overall, however, this was an excellently-written and interesting book.

  • The reader of What Goes Around enters a participatory adventure with five characters, smart women who are resolute in wanting to avenge the murder of a friend. They plan their revenge not simply as personal payback, but as legitimate justice. Their targets are three powerful men who otherwise won't be held responsible. These men are protected by wealth and position, but if they can't be brought to justice, the victim's friends will bring justice to them. As satisfying as seeing the "good revenges" work out are the self-discoveries the women make in facing their own fears and dangerous situations.

    I think Susan Diamond is an outstanding writer, presenting serious themes of public and private life, privilege and morality, and the power of friendship. Outstanding also is the aura of Los Angeles. The novel is a real page-turner: consequential, intelligent, witty, and yes, downright funny. What a surprise and pleasure is this gem!

  • I love the smart characters and fast-moving plot of this novel. The
    women in WHAT GOES AROUND absolutely personify friendship and
    bravery. I picked this up for a Summer read- but this book goes in my top 10 list of all time. I hope there's a sequel!
