Nine Lives; Peter Swanson
William Morrow and Harper Audio - 2022

Jonathan Grant, unless he let her know ahead of time that he couldn't make it, always visited on Wednesday evening. His wife had a standing "girls' night out" on Wednesdays--occasionally in the city, but usually in New Jersey--so Jonathan would leave the office by five and be at Alison's one-bedroom apartment in Gramercy Park by five-thirty at the latest.
Gotta tell you, I'm not too fond of this guy already. However, I started this book, by Peter Swanson, an author I've had mostly great luck with, and I'm really enjoying this stand alone mystery so far.
What do you think?
