*** Need You Dead by Peter James

Need You Dead starts with a dead woman in a bathtub. Her husband is the perfect suspect since he has had several encounters with the police for spouse abuse, but she also has a duplicitous lover and is in a battle with a violent would-be buyer of her car. As the detective investigates, he is himself dealing with the unexpected arrival of a long-lost son into his new marriage, providing an ample back story. If you can see past the repetitive, rapid-fire sentences and the unfortunate psycho-babble around the son’s arrival, you will surely enjoy the twisted plot.
