For those of you who are unfamiliar with my Kim Reynolds mysteries, I’ll mention that THE BAD WIFE is actually the fourth novel in the series and the most recent. Each novel in the series features the same main characters. However, each novel stands alone as a unique and complete murder mystery. In addition, the main characters are not static. Like real people, they lead changing lives and have complex personalities. Kim Reynolds, an academic librarian who is also a reluctant sleuth and psychic, has been romantically involved with Lieutenant Mike Gardner, a homicide detective. It comes as something of a shock to both Kim and him discovering that he is still legally married.
