Nine Lives [PDF]

by Bernice Rubens
2002. Not what you'dcall a 'literary' book, but it's fairly well done.
The portrait of the two wives who visit their murderer husbands in prison every week sounds plausible.

"I wasn't convinced of his innocence, but at the same time, I couldn't believe that he was guilty. In view of our years together, the happiness we'd shared, it was much easier to presume his innocence....

"Neither of us [the two women visiting their husbands in prison] dared to believe what was real, so we fashioned another kind of truth. We had to....And it was pity that would lace our stirrings in the small hours, a pity so dangerously close to resentment and anger that it led to a paralysing confusion."

"I saw Donald in his prison gear and was overwhelmed with a feeling I couldn't quite define. It could have been love for him, but possibly it was one of protection. Or perhaps they were one and the same."

The murderer wants revenge on the psychotherapy profession as a whole, yet benefits from a therapist, though he doesn't realize it. That was cleverly shown, I thought.
