I've read this book three times over the years and I must say that each time I've read it I couldn't get enough of it. A friend of mine said: "Adultery happens every day." She is right but I believe that its ubiquity stems from the lack of any real sanctions/punishments to the culprits. Were there some severe punishments meted out I can honestly say that adultery would decline tremendously.

For instance, if a man convicted of adultery had his penis and testicles removed in punishment you can bet there would be a 95% drop in anyone even wanting to think about committing the act of adultery. If a woman convicted of adultery was forced to run butt-naked down the main street of her city with thousands watching, cheering and videotaping the act for posterity you can bet very few--if any--women would contemplate adultery. Women are still less likely to commit the act than men but more do now than when this book was originally written in 1976. Forty years later women are cheating at ever higher rates. Some 50% to 60% of women cheat on their husbands! That is a shocking statistic. It probably was half as much in 1976. Although after separation Mr. Pearce said that 80% of women will have an affair.

The stories represented in this book are all the more fascinating because it takes place in my town. I found the narration and writing of Mr. Pearce to be fluid and very interesting without becoming too verbose.

I highly recommend this book. Buy it and you won't be disappointed. Too bad it's out of print. It would be a welcome addition to anyone's mystery library shelf. Five Stars all around is my rate. I've heard that Mr. Pearce has passed away. that's too bad. The man was a master at what he did. I so wish I could have met him. He was a true genius.

I had the privilege of knowing Mr. Pearce (aka W.W., or just Dub to his freinds) for a short period before he passed away. One of his sons became one of my best freinds and has been for about 17 years. I work with his other son in a company in our area. BUY THIS BOOK, you will not regret it. It is very intertaining. I gave a copy to my Mom and once she started reading, she hardly put it down until she was finnished. It also is a small insight into the way things was before cell phones and a lot of technology we take for granted now days. One example was W.W. would put cheap analog wrist watches under a car tire, when the person would leave and ran over it, a broken watch would show the time as to when they left. Where in our digital world would you find cheap analog watches?
