The Ex

John Lutz broke out with his debut thriller, The Ex, a couple of years ago. It was about your not typical ex that you've come across, now and then. David Jones was a happily remarried man with a devoted wife Molly and an adorable son Michael. But once upon a time, he was married to Deirdre. Years later, she re-entered his life with a plan of her own to win him back. And she would take down any obstacles in her way, leaving a trail of wreckage in her wake. Set in the backdrop of NYC, she wormed her way into their lives and driving a wedge her between Molly and David. In this fast-paced thriller, she made it personal, until the shocking climax with a surprising ending.

I loved the backdrop of this hard-core thriller. I did feel bad for David and Molly Jones and their son Michael. When they've gotten everything right, Deirdre came into their life like a whirlwind. I didn't care for her at all and had gotten her comeuppance in the end. I cringed, moaned and groaned, and broke out in a cold sweat. I loved the NYC backdrop as well to paint the scene as well. A light read for a thriller that would leave you on edge.

Why not give this one a try today?
