Mystery & Suspense • 11.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

The title of this mystery is ironic. Jim Beckett is not a perfect husband or even an acceptable human being. He is a serial killer, who has vowed a vendetta against his wife, Tess. She, anticipating his revenge, has engaged the help of a burned-out ex-marine to help her prepare for what she knows will be a grisly confrontation. Jennifer Wydra has a pleasing voice and the ability to build suspense with her pacing and vocal intensity. She does male characters well, and the only jarring note is the exaggerated, peculiar New England accent she puts on for Tess. While the middle of the story drags and you begin to wish the maniac husband would hurry up and find Tess, actress/ reader Jennifer Wydra has the potential of becoming a popular reader of audiobooks.
