HANGING TIME, by Leslie Glass

 NYPD Detective April Woo’s mother, Dragon Lady Mother, don’t give her daughter no respect. Intent on marrying her only child off to a nice Chinese boy, April spends a much energy on her relentless parent as she does on the criminals she must catch. This time, a shopgirl is found, hanging, in the back room of a classy Upper West Side boutique. But she didn't die from hanging and it wasn't suicide, not with that makeup smeared all over and the oversize dress billowing. Woo and her new partner, smoking hot Mike Sanchez, figure it for a one-off. Then it happens again. As April's old acquaintance, psychiatrist Jason Frank, works with a manipulative client, April asks him to interview a suspect. It comes together almost too late. A 4+.
