This book started with a flashback, one that introduced us to Helen Esterhazy Pendergast. We follow their last days together, then jump to the present. Where Pendergast finds out that it was not only murder, but he did not know his wife’s hobbies, nor her very well at all.
My favorite part in this book was when Laura Hayward and Pendergast start working together. It brings them closer to an understanding, and encourages Laura to soften some-what to Pendergast’s style. It also gave a perfect opportunity to witness his more, um, violent side in action.
We also meet Judson Esterhazy, Helen’s brother. He is quite a fascinating character, to say the least.
All-in-all, I greatly enjoyed the book. Though I did feel as if Helen didn’t understand the point of a spouse.
