I picked this book up and was intrigued by the story line. We are all fascinated by the concept of love, particularly when it turns sour. This is the basis of the book. Wife returns early, from health farm visit, and discovers from the presence of scattered lingerie, husband has been conducting an extra-marital while she has been away. Wife on discovering this decides to embark on a revenge campaign, using various tactics which includes taking her angst out on husband's car and befriending the mistress. Initially then ensuing events are compelling. However as the story continues to unfold , I felt that the plot could have been more realistic and shorter. The characters are vacant and the outcome of this sorry state of affairs is absurd.
