The aggressively witty and sensational novel from the author of Best Laid Plans and The Boy Who Fell to Earth

You could…

… shove him off a cliff?
… hit him with a mallet?
… put arsenic in his tea?
Who would judge you? Lord knows every woman has thought about it… right?

For Cassie, Jasmine and Hannah their private jokes about dispatching their significant others have suddenly taken on a sinister reality. Particularly for Jasmine, because somewhere between her husband’s philandering and their marriage saving grace trip to Australia he’s gone and got himself killed… What’s a girl to do? Life should begin at 40 but now she’s facing 40 to life!

Of course she didn’t do it… but are they sure?

She did make an awful lot of jokes… she often said ‘where there’s a will there’s a way in’ and, you know, maybe he deserved it?

Despite all this, Cassie and Hannah are sure of their friend’s innocence and set out to clear her name. But they’re not prepared for what they find… betrayal, adultery, toy boys and suspicions that just won’t go away. Can their friendship survive these increasingly dark revelations?

With a wit and wisdom all her own, Kathy Lette has crafted another hilarious and poignant novel about marriage.
