Ben Bradford has it all: a beautiful wife and two healthy young sons, a big house in an affluent Connecticut suburb, partnership at a prestigious Manhattan law firm. But scratch the surface and you'll find a deeply unhappy man. Once upon a time, Ben dreamed of becoming a photographer; instead, he spends his days in a fossilized Wall Street office, fantasizing about escaping into his private darkroom, away from the daily corporate grind and the disapproving gaze of his wife, Beth, who, it seems, simply doesn't like him anymore.
Heartbroken by the realization that Beth is having an affair with a neighbor, Ben begins to panic. His efforts at reconciliation are rebuffed; Beth wants a divorce. When an unexpected confrontation with the lover turns ugly, a split second is all it takes to change Ben's life forever, leaving him only one way out. But if he takes it, there's no going back...

I read this book years ago and was excited to come across it again.
Not only is it a murder-mystery, it's also an interesting look at the world of an artist and the ability of people to recreate themselves.
