Summary
Francie Cullingwood's marriage is sham. She can track its devolution back to the time long past when she and her husband, Roger, tried and failed to have a child. Roger's sperm were at fault, and he refused to adopt: the whole point of having children was to pass on superior genes, couldn't Francie see that? Husband and wife have gone for the most part their separate ways. Francie has made a successful career acquiring art for an unnamed foundation; Roger's life has been devoted to his career as an investor. Two things hasten the Cullingwood's marriage to an overdue close. First, Roger loses his job in a corporate downsizing, becoming embittered and reclusive. Second, Francie finds herself in love with another man. An affair that began with a chance encounter at a friend's island cabin has become the most important thing in her life. Although she has neither asked for nor received any promises of a future from her married lover (a talk-radio psychologist), Francie resolves to leave Roger after he nearly rapes her. Roger discovers a painting Francie purchased for her lover, Ned. An incriminatingly endearing note with the painting alerts Roger to his wife's indiscretion, and the awareness that he has been cuckolded drives him over an edge he didn't even know he was near. An intelligent man with a decidedly genius-level IQ, Roger begins to plot the perfect crime -- one that will leave Francie dead and himself impeccably clear of incrimination
