Publisher's Summary

After serving ten years of a life sentence for murder, Stephen Dawes was released on licence to start a new life. But Stephen could not let the past bury itself; he alone knew he had not killed his wife Marcia. As Stephen set out to reconstruct Marcia's last hours, the time she must have spent plotting a suicide meant to look like murder, he gradually began to realize that nothing was as it had seemed, and that he was chasing a murderer himself...and putting his own life in jeopardy.

An old story

While not surprising, I found this book entertaining and well written.

First of all....this book was annoying....

....for the fact that the narrator of the audio book was just plain ole AWFUL!!!....plus the editing and production of the book was so choppy and messy that it was hard to follow the story at times.....the narrator's voice would be low than high than muffled....etc.....just a really bad audiobook!

As for the story itself......the 2 main female characters in this book, Lois and Marcia, are a couple of the most dispicable....spoiled....awful human beings I have read about in a long time. I figured out the murder mystery within the first hour of listening to the book which was frustrating because I just wanted it to get over.......the ending was really bad for the fact that it just ended in the middle of a conversation.....really blunt and strange.....

The book was okay but I don't think I will be reading another Margaret Yorke book anytime soon.
