Über diesen Titel


There are times when Judith Lassiter feels content, perhaps even happy. She is content to be married to a well-heeled architect who graciously remembers their fifteenth anniversary with fifteen red roses. She is content with Green Diamonds, the house her husband designed, the envy of their acquaintances. She is content with her life in the town of Wyfleet, content with her financial status, even content with her appearance. Then why does Judith write herself imaginary love letters in the solitude of her bedroom? Why does she take on a very real lover several years her junior? Why does she believe she can redeem her life only by taking another's, employing the unlady-like recourse of a professional hit man?

From Publishers Weekly:

Distinguished British crime writer Symons ( The Colour of Murder ) carves a little gem of manners, murder and indirection. Judith Lassiter, 37, married to Victor, a handsome and successful architect, feels so restless that she copies out passionate letters from romance novels and sends them to herself. Her chum Debbie suggests an affair, "something to shake you up," and signs Judith up for a driver's-ed refresher course with a handsome, if rough-spoken, young man whom Judith beds after the second lesson. An ex-schoolmate, now a police detective, also shows interest in her, arousing the suspicions of Victor, who is cooking up a shady real estate scheme with a builder. Short interludes titled "Afterwards" punctuate the story, describing the police investigation of a body found in a lover's lane. Scandalous secrets are uncovered and fatal alliances forged before the two narratives intersect. Judith's pain and obsession with the driving instructor are beautifully, leanly drawn. The final "Afterwards" holds a series of shocks, which Symons relates with his trademark economy: not a word is wasted. The third edition of Symons's critical study Bloody Murder will be published simultaneously.
