    In Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary - “a guy who weighs risk for a living” - takes a risk of his own, and makes the biggest error of his life. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who’s taking care of his children for the summer. Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, but not before turning the tables on Walter and setting in motion a tragedy of epic proportions.

    Story

    Oedipus Rex, the plot is a given. The parade of characters are shallow, self-absorbed, unlikeable. The descriptions of scenery are Northwest but add nothing to the narrative. The meandering into side topics irrelevant. And that's just the first half of the story I was able to get through.
