Deceptive Practices by Simon Wood
Do you have a cheating spouse? Has counseling failed? Want to get even? Then hire Infidelity Limited…
Olivia Shaw grew up poor on the wrong side of the tracks, but with her thriving real estate business and a solid marriage, her life finally feels stable…until she discovers her husband is cheating. Enraged, her sister offers a solution: Infidelity Limited, a firm that promises to rough up her husband and scare him straight.
Overnight, Olivia’s life is upended as she, like all of Infidelity Limited’s clients, is drawn into a dark web of blackmail and murder. Now, Olivia is emerging as a prime suspect in her husband’s death. As a dogged detective closes in, Olivia has only one option: take down Infidelity Limited before it’s too late.

Simon Wood never fails to hook me into his unique intriguing plots. Olivier Shaw is enraged when she discovers that her husband is cheating on her and wants revenge. Her unscrupulous sister Clare introduces her to 'Infidelity Limited' who took money to beat him up to teach him a lesson. He was beaten to death, and Olivier is a prime suspect. She is also subject to extortion and finds she may have to kill to 'buy' her freedom. That's enough to keep anybody hooked, but believe me there is a lot more.
