9780061987311: Imperfect Strangers

Sandy Kinsolving's once-glittering life hangs by a threat; his future depends on his wife's inheritance and whether or not she's about to throw him out on his ear. What he wouldn't give for a solution to his money and marriage problems.

If this were an Alfred Hitchcock movie, the solution would be obvious. Enter a stranger with wife problems of his own, who offers a violent -- and mutually advantageous - proposal.

Them in the time it takes to whisper a word, Kinsolving's normal life ends. What radiates like a mirage before him is wealth, security, and freedom. But lurking in the shadows are a brutal murder he cannot prevent, and a madman who stalks his every waking moment.

Review:

"Engages the reader's imagination in an unconventional way. Compels us to place the novel's events on the silver screen in the shadow of a latter-day Hitchcock, and somehow, it works." -- "Chicago Sun-Times" "Woods does show a reader a good time." -- "Washington Post Book World""Engages the reader's imagination in an unconventional way. Compels us to place the novel's events on the silver screen in the shadow of a latter-day Hitchcock, and somehow, it works." -- "Chicago Sun-Times"

From the Back Cover:

A MESMERISING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER OF GREED, LOVE, BETRAYAL AND DEATH

Sandy Kinsolving is on a flight from London to New York, unsure what awaits him at the other end. His father-in-law – also his boss – has suffered a massive stroke, and Sandy has no way of knowing if the old man's promises of a partnership in the family business have made it into his will.

At this vulnerable moment, he strikes up a conversation with the friendly stranger sitting next to him. After the in-flight movie, Hitchcock's 'Stranger on a Train', and a few too many drinks, the two men discover they have a mutual problem: difficult wives who control the purse strings. For fun, they decide to improve upon the film, and plot how they would rid their lives of complications.

By the time Sandy Kinsolving's plane has landed in New York his life has changed irrevocably, although he doesn't know it yet. Awaiting him are wealth, security and the freedom to pursue his life's ambitions. But lurking in the shadows are a brutal murder he cannot prevent, and a madman who stalks his every waking moment.

‘Stuart Woods is a slam-bang, no-nonsense storyteller who doesn't disappoint’
