Fatal Affair

Kurt is looking to spice up his mundane life. Trapped in a loveless marriage to a neglectful wife, he stays only because of his fragile child. Kurt believes he’s found the perfect solution to his boredom when he meets Beth, a 1940’s enthusiast with a wild sexual appetite.

Life becomes more tolerable for Kurt until both he and his family become the victims of a stalker. To his horror, Beth is also being stalked, and she fears it’s a violent lover from her past. She suggests murder. But after the deed is done, blackmail soon follows…

FATAL AFFAIR is the story of one man’s search for a little pick-me -up that goes horribly wrong with escalating episodes of fear, suspicion, and crime. Perhaps Beth is at fault, or maybe it’s his wife Eileen who is cheating herself, or what about Beth’s dentist husband Stan?

This is an interesting story, told from the viewpoint of Kurt. We see his guilt, his fears, and his inadequacies. We meet Beth: Brazen, wanton, and a bit over the top. As a reader, you can’t feel sorry for any of them (with the exception of Kurt’s innocent little girl), but that is the interesting aspect of this story—everyone is guilty in some capacity, and in a way, this makes the story brilliantly bizarre in own way.
