When Dr. John Taylor turns up dead in a hotel room, the local police uncover enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose Palo Alto beat usually covers petty crimes, is innocently thrown into a high-profile case that is more complicated than any she has faced before. A renowned reconstructive surgeon and a respected family man, Dr. Taylor was beloved and admired. But beneath his perfect façade was a hidden life in fact, multiple lives. Dr. Taylor was married to three very different women in three separate cities. As the circumstances surrounding his death emerge, Detective Adams finds herself tracking down a murderer through a tangled web of marital deception and revenge. New York Times bestselling author Alice LaPlante's haunting and complex novel of family secrets dissects with scalpel-like agility the intricacies of desire and commitment, trust and jealousy.

A great read with a twist I didn't see coming - couldn't put it down.

My book club is still talking about this title. Obviously a thought provoking twist or two.

The wives include the original wealthy controlling wife, a less-educated slightly younger woman, a younger doctor and an the even younger fiance. The wives interact during the investigation and contemplate how they did not know this man.

When a man is found dead in a hotel room, the investigation into the cause of his death reveals that he was married to three very different women. The story is told via the perspectives of each these three wives, and from the perspective of a young female detective who is assigned to work the murder case. Short chapters and lots of interesting and very complicated female characters made this title hard to put down. My only issue with the book was that the ending was somewhat predictable.
