A Foolish Plucking

A Foolish PluckingA Foolish Plucking by Dee Wilbur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from the authors in exchange for this review.

This book came across as a cross between Law & Order and Perry Mason. It starts with an argument at the country club, where the wife leaves her drunk husband. The next morning, the husband finds himself at home, but his wife is missing. Soon, he is arrested for her murder, even though his wife's body is nowhere to be found. To add to all of this, his mistress tells him she's pregnant. It's up to the lawyers and the investigators to sort this all out. I won't give away too much of the rest of the plot. Too many spoilers. I did get lost sometimes. I couldn't figure out how a certain situation related to the original murder case. The authors do wrap it all up, though. They did leave room at the end for a sequel. All in all, a good book.
