Philip Bartels is in love - but not with his wife. He is fond of her, as she is of him, but there isn't the passion, the devotion, that he feels for Lorna...
But Philip is a kind man; he doesn't want to hurt his wife. If he left her, she would be utterly humiliated. Surely it would be better - better for her - if she just died...
FIVE ROUNDABOUTS TO HEAVEN is the brilliantly written novel of a man who sets out to murder his wife - with consequences he could never have anticipated. Told through the eyes of his best friend, it is one of the most compelling - and ultimately surprising - thrillers of the twentieth century.
