My name is Judith Chambers.
I am a thirty-two year old business woman by day.
By night I am a dedicated homewrecker.
The dreaded â€śother womanâ€ť.
Donâ€™t judge me before youâ€™ve read my story.
An erotic and darkly romantic journey into adultery, sex magic, and high society lust, Judith Chambers is the ultimate female predator, beautiful, wealthy, intelligent, with almost zero empathy for the men she seduces and the wives they leave behind.
The fix is in and the bodies are piling up.
A dead actress, a dead gambler and thatâ€™s for starters.
With murder following his every step, determined under-achiever Steele Hill is tangled in layers of intrigue and deviousness.
Pulled from his 1980s cozy world of the racetrack, the rock-music pub and his favorite band in the world, the Go-Betweens, everybody the wise-cracking Hill meets is in danger.
Come, wipe away the encrustations of sleep, and peer through sore and bleary eyes to share in Mark Hillierâ€™s nocturnal visions; bear witness to that which his wife will not believe. The sweat of deep summer nightâ€™s fevered breath lent an unseasonal chill.
Mark should be happy, but instead finds his sense of self undermined by what is beamed into his home courtesy of a portable television set.
