He placed a notice in a Chicago paper an advertisement for "a reliable wife." She responded saying that she was "a simple honest woman." She was of course anything but honest and the only simple thing about her was her single-minded determination to marry this man and then kill him slowly and carefully leaving her a wealthy widow able to take care of the one she truly loved. What Catherine Land did not realize was that the enigmatic and lonely Ralph Truitt had a plan of his own. And what neither anticipated was that they would fall so completely in love. Filled with unforgettable characters and shimmering with color and atmosphere A Reliable Wife is an enthralling tale of love and madness of longing and murder.
