Will Kingsolving finish through with the plan and kill Martindale's wife next? Or will be go to the police and hope they believe him? Won't you be surprised when you find out just who Sandy is really supposed to kill...
I think this is a great Stuart Woods book and understand why it was nominated for an award.
The fundamental plot is disturbing, but perhaps more disturbing is the lack of moral awareness (at least much of the time) of the two main characters in the book (Sandy and Peter) - Sandy thankfully decides not to proceed with the plot until he is essentially blackmailed into fulfilling his end of the bargain, but Peter goes from being merely a suspicious character to outright diabolical. I think the book is interesting because it features a flawed hero dealing with an array of nasty problems created in part by his wife but also by his own actions which inevitably come back to haunt him. You never really "like" Sandy 100%, or even 80%, but you perhaps become sympathetic to his desire to escape from this situation.
Woods' writing and imagination in this book are very good, better than in some recent novels (see Reckless Abandon). I enjoy this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone heading to the beach.
started to get interesting
It's not my favorite Stuart Woods novel. Guess I'm too hooked
On the Stone Barrington series.
They discuss why the Hitchcock murderers failed. The problem was that one of the husbands changes his mind and did not want the other to kill his wife, and the other man was a psychopath. They decide that they will be able to avoid the problems and kill each other's wife. Sandy tells Peter how and when he can kill his wife. They give each other an out. They can call and cancel the deal.
As the day for the murder approaches, Sandy decides to cancel. He calls and leaves a message for Peter at his hotel. He later calls Peter's hotel again and is assured that Peter got the message. He is also told that when Peter read the message, he smiled. However, when the evening arrives for Sandy's wife to be killed, she is killed, just as he and Peter arranged. The police suspect Sandy of being involved because he inherits an enormous amount of money with her death, but the officers admit to each other that they have little chance of proving his guilt.
Without revealing too much detail about the rest of this engrossing tale, Peter admits killing Sandy's wife and insists that Sandy kill his wife.Read more ›

Good story, keeps the reader guessing. The main character seemed very similar to Stone Barrington - same hangouts, same interests. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Margaret
