Rona Jaffe, 74, whose 1958 novel The Best of Everything told the melodramatic story of four young career girls torn between storybook romance and cutthroat corporate Manhattan, died of cancer Friday at University College Hospital in London, where she was on vacation. Movie producer Jerry Wald essentially commissioned Miss Jaffe, at the time a 25-year-old former associate editor in publishing, to write a book that he could turn into a blockbuster feature film. Less than a year after the book appeared, The Best of Everything was released as a chic but heavy-handed film by 20th Century Fox. Hope Lange, Diane Baker, Martha Hyer and the 1950s model Suzy Parker starred as the young women about town.

Obviously, this is not going to be your run-of-the-mill detective story.In 1991's " 'H' is for Homicide," private eye Kinsey Millhone was fired from California Fidelity, the insurance company she worked for part time in exchange for office space.

He simply could not explain how the dentist had infected five patients with acquired immune-deficiency syndrome.
