Format: Mass Market Paperback
MacDonald, in one of his best works, sympathetically explores the crushing pain of infidelity, along with the reasons it happens. As he so often does, he contrasts the short-term impulses of humanity with the principled, long-term dignity that we all want to achieve. His perspective is exemplary of the great detective fiction writer (although this isn't detective fiction), and this is his most focused exploration of the near vs. the far.

HASH(0xa6c0a9c0) out of 5 stars "Come on Janey, you know you want it." Sept. 8 2014
By JimmySpags - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a book about lust and seduction. If you're waiting for someone to get killed, forget it. But this is even better. Remembering that this book was published in 1953, the rules of the game were different. Men could screw any woman they could seduce, but women had to stay loyal and chaste. This was even before Don Draper and Mad Men, and the company made furnaces instead of writing advertising copy. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions and dialogue of seductions. The scene where Laura was able to take 4 handkerchieves and turn them into a bikini is priceless. "Honey you forgot your swimsuit." "Oh no, it's in my purse." Feminists should definitely stay away from this book. But for any man looking for a tech manual on seduction, I heartily recommend.
HASH(0xa6c0ac9c) out of 5 stars A super story; a cautionary nightmare. Oct. 13 2015
By McDesign - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found the book wonderfully effective - as a long-time married guy, I was almost afraid to pick it up each night - not sure what would happen next; what Fletch and Janey would do next to childishly smash their pretty lives. Clemmie, a later work (and personal favorite) also dealing with middle-aged crazy, is much more one-sided, and consequently far less effective.

I'm a huge fan - I have all of the MacDonald books, and am now working through them consecutively - this is of course, very early

This story is what real nightmares are made of - how close to disaster we can run when we try to be sophisticated

Really good book. Many of the insights and scenarios are dated but also hold up in modern relationships.

HASH(0xa6c0aa80) out of 5 stars Dated and dreary March 21 2014
By L. R. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While MacDonald is a fine writer, this book, set in the fifties, is a real drag. The morals of the protagonist are deplorable. He is a serial adulterer who feels he must divorce his wife because of a drunken one time liaison. I finished the book thanking my lucky stars I am not living in that Mad Men era when women were objects and men made the rules.
