Jodi, a psychoanalyst, is in denial that her companion of 20 years is unfaithful until he decides to leave her. Their comfortable relationship is now in peril. Has she enabled him long enough? Is revenge the answer? How far will that desire for revenge take her? Todd is comfortable with their relationship, too. His meals are cooked, his house is well kept, and they enjoy their high-end lifestyle. But he wants more and takes up with yet another woman, this time younger. This sounds like the same old plot, but it is reinvented here as Harrison shows both sides of her protagonists' feelings and actions in alternating chapters, Him and Her. By peeling back the layers of their lives and revealing circumstances that brought them to where they are, you are drawn into the spiral of lives torn apart and the unsettling disintegration of a marriage. But there are some twists and turns. You don't have to like the characters to appreciate the deft hand of the author that shows the emotional dynamics that twisted and turned their lives into a slow motion train wreck.
