THE BEST LAID PLANS OFTEN GO AWRY...,
This review is from: A Perfect Crime (Paperback)
This is a page turning thriller with a host of quirky, interesting characters. When two unhappy marriages give rise to the adulterous relationship between the husband in one marriage and a wife in another, all hell eventually breaks loose, and murder is the end result.
When Frances enters into an adulterous affair with Ned, a radio show psychologist, little does she know where it will lead. When Roger, her brilliant, though socially clueless husband, discovers her perfidy, he sets out to construct the perfect murder. Enlisting the aid of an ex-con, who initially has no idea he is a pawn in a murder plot, thinks quickly go awry, as the ex-con proves to have his own ideas about things.
This is an excellent thriller, laced with humorous moments. Tautly written, with fairly well-fleshed characters, despite it being a plot driven book, it should appeal to those who enjoy mysteries and thrillers.
