Meet Chick Best - a middle-aged, self-absorbed, disaffected, California dot.com millionaire. Other than his house and high-priced foreign cars, Chick's most expensive possession is his trophy wife, Evelyn.

Evelyn is good at spending Chick's money, money that has pretty much run out. His other personal possession is his drug-addled 16-year-old daughter, Melissa. Though concerned about his life and family, Chick resigns himself to a miserable state of acceptance.

That is, until he, Evelyn, and Melissa take a Christmas vacation in Maui. With this, Chick's life changes. He experiences unrequited love at first sight when he observes Paige Ellis. His obsession, exceeded only by his need to possess her, isn't diminished when he learns that she is happily married. Instead, he befriends Paige and her near-perfect husband, Chandler.

A short time later, Chick's obsession compels him to drive to Paige's house, where he runs down and kills Chandler in a drug-store parking lot. He attends the husband's funeral, feigning compassion for Paige. Several months later, with his lust for Paige in high gear, Chick stages a carjacking and murders Evelyn. Evidence that Chick has planted in and around the car implicates an ex-convict.

When he calls Paige with the news of Evelyn's murder, she returns the favor and comes to comfort Chick in what she thinks is his time of need. Chick, however, has other ideas. Will Paige learn the truth before it's too late? Download and start listening now!

    " Once again FINALLY a fiction story that held my interest. Better to not know anything about the story, but it hooked me and took me into a whirlpool of obsession and went where I thought it wouldn't go. But some readers deffinetly don't like where it goes. All of Cannell's friends tried to talk him out of writting it. But he had to, he said. "

    " This may very well be my favourite Cannell book to date. Sad that the author died not long ago because he was a fantastic writer. This story, although often predictable, was still suspenseful and entertaining; a real page-turner. The characters were excellent. My audio version was narrated by Scott Brick, who is always a phenomenal narrator! "

    " I couldn't put it down. Like watching a train wreck, I just had to see the end. Quick and twisted funny. "

    " I loved it, my wife hated it. We are both big fans of Cannell. "
