Murder, money, and marriage pack a triple treat in this absorbing, character-driven crime novel from Thomas Perry.

When Los Angeles P.I. Phil Kramer is shot dead on a deserted suburban street in the middle of the night, his wife, Emily, is left with an emptied bank account and a lot of questions. How could Phil leave her penniless? What was he going to do with the money? And, most of all, who was the man she thought she married? Meanwhile, Jerry Hobart has some questions of his own. It's none of his business why he was hired to kill Phil Kramer. But now that he's been ordered to take out Kramer's widow, he senses a deeper secret at work--and maybe a bigger payoff from Ted Forrest, the mysterious wealthy man behind the hit.

Perry makes us like assassins and they are much nicer people than those who hire them.

My problem with this well-written and entertaining book, which occurs in other Perry novels, is the way the killer, murderer, or serial killer, just happens to come into existence, almost as if, or with strong inteference, that such is a given? Evidently, in Perry's universe, everyone has the potential to become an assassin? A real shortcoming after his excellent book, "Metzger's Dog."
