If you want to know why I chose to publish Winslow's Wife myself, read vanity publishing.
A missing husband … a mysterious portrait … a twenty-year-old crime … .
The Denver Police think that John Hewitt has simply taken off, probably with another woman, but Caroline Hewitt doesn’t believe it. In frustration, she turns for help to her old friend, middle-aged software consultant Lexy Connor.
Lexy thinks that 35 years without so much as a Christmas card strains the definition of friendship, but she finds it hard to refuse to help. As Lexy explores the world of John Hewitt, she comes to agree that his disappearance is not simply a manifestation of an overdue mid-life crisis; something vastly more sinister has happened.
The only clue is a portrait of an unknown woman, painted by an equally mysterious artist, but it proves to be enough as Lexy discovers once again that there is no limit to the evil people are capable of inflicting on others in the name of love.
Lexy’s search takes her from the lush landscapes of the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York to the stark mountain ridges of Nevada before it ends in a confrontation with a killer in the Rocky Mountains of her own backyard.
Winslow's Wife is produced using print-on-demand technology, which means very simply that they don't print one until someone demands it. That means that it is unlikely that you will find it on the shelf in your favorite bookstore or library. However, all you have to do to get it is demand it. It's that simple. All of the normal book sources, click-and-buy or brick-and-mortar, will be able to order it.
$23.95; cloth; 230 pages Worldwide Library, September, 2000 ISBN 0-373263-60-0 $5.99; paper
Lexy Connor is perfectly content with her uneventful life: her Boulder,
Colorado suburban home; her bookcases full of mystery novels; her love of good
food (the source of her magnificent girth); and her faithful Westie companion,
Molly. But then a phone call in the middle of the night sends her peaceful world
