This was a pretty quick read, though the story drug a bit here and there. It's really about a woman scorned, learning from a friend how those in the "know" can conspire to cheat you in a divorce. A lot of unnecessary/undeveloped characters but the overall story is clever. The author needs to read a few more Sue Grafton mysteries, but she's not bad, either. I'd like to see this character tackle a few more mysteries: she's likable and vulnerable, with the right amount of sassiness.
