Wife or mistress? An age old problem but amoral Henry (think Ripley, but less competent) makes a disastrous choice. A perfect life, based on lies, spins out of control; there are deaths; the police are involved. Can Henry regain control and wriggle out of his predicament? As I read this book with an intriguing cast of characters, full of suspense but with a sly undertone of humour, I had to stop myself skipping to the end to find out.
