The Drive-By Wife by Mike Wells

I do not like recapping a story - the author has a synopsis; my retelling may give something away. I do have to say this is one of the rare books where I did not like either the husband or the wife, (though she is a bit above him, if I were forced to choose the more likable one). With the ending the way it played out, I am disturbed the person I liked most was the maniac. I cannot recall that happening to me before. Definitely not certain what that says about me. Haha.
