What this book is about:

Zeke found out his wife was screwing around on him with another man from pictures that were mailed to him at his office. He was so pissed off. They were married for 34 years and she goes and does this to him. Also, he finds his son-in-law Sam screwing an intern. He decides that his wife Sapphire has to pay for what she has done, and his son-in-law has to pay for betrying his only daughter Jewell. He tells his son-in-law that he has to murder Sapphire. His son-in-law Sam is torn. He owes to much to Zeke. Zeke helped him get a job instead of turning him into the police and making him go to jail, but he doesn't want to cause the death of his mother-in-law.

My thoughts:

I found Dwyane Joseph on Goodreads and thought his book sounded really good and I bought it from Amazon. I really loved this book. I could feel the rage that Zeke had toward his wife for what she did to him. How could she betray him and just lie about it like there was nothing wrong. I also felt his wife's loneliness and her emotions as she was being satisfied by this other man. She met him in Barnes & Noble and he told her that for a price he could satisfy her since she isn't getting it from her husband.

This book was a page turner. I was shocked by how the story ended and it really made my stomach churn. I was on the edge of my seat! If you haven't read any books by Dwayne, you really should. I can't wait to read another one of his books!

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!
