Cold Cold Heart by Karin Slaughter
It follows Pam, as she goes to see her ex-husband die - at his request. As she travels back, she reminisces about him, and you know what? He's a terrible husband and I don't feel sorry that he's dying. He's an egomaniac and a hypocrite. I was actually hoping this would be one of those anti-hero stories where it turns out Pam is out to murder her husband.
Um yeah, I'm violent. Sorry, I know it's bad.
The ending was a little hard for me to understand, because it made no sense. I suppose it's because I don't believe that what her ex-husband wanted would happen. So to me, that action was meaningless. But I suppose to others, this would be the perfect revenge.
I really do wish this book was longer. The characters are very well-crafted, and I'd love to read more about them. They're not lovable, but they're fascinating.
