Extreme Provocation

A novel by

Andrew and Marjorie Harrison's marriage is childless and for years Marjorie discovers an outlet for her frustrated maternal feelings. But as Marjorie's obsession with her new hobby grows she has less and less time for Andrew and relations between them begin to break down even further. When she finally provokes him in the cruellest way a woman can provoke a man, Andrew's self-control snaps.It is for a jury - and the reader - to decide whether Marjorie's death through Andrew's violent behaviour is an accident, an act of manslaughter - or even murder. Andrew's solicitor is confident that his client didn't intend to kill Marjorie. But then new witnesses come forward with some very damning evidence....An unexpected variation on what appears at first to be a straightforward theme, MilesTripp's new novel is a gripping portrayal of obsession and treachery - with a twist to the tale...
