"Sam Madison and his wife, Sandrine, both professors at Georgia's Coburn College (he of literature, she of history) and parents of a grown daughter, appear to have a solid marriage. But below the surface there are problems, which culminate in Sandrine's death from a cocktail of Demerol and vodka. While the coroner rules the death a suicide, the police suspect foul play and soon zero in on Sam as his wife's killer. The local prosecutor is so certain of Sam's guilt that he seeks the death penalty. In the course of the murder trial, which runs from unexpected revelations on the witness stand to torrents of legalese as the attorneys jockey for power, Sam reflects on his relationship with the brilliant, beautiful, and vexing Sandrine."--Publisher's Weekly

i don't usually read psychological thrillers, but a friend recommended this and so I gave it a try. This is a very good book that tells the story of the struggle for one man's soul through his trial for the murder of his wife. The death was a suicide, but it causes him to question himself and his life. Excellent reading.

Though interesting, Cook's last five books have centered on women an the thrust appears more as academic tool in english then his prior mystery books
