What makes a financially successful, happily married man want to kill his wife? What makes that man turn into a fugitive and leave town with his two children? What if you were his best friend and witnessed his steady decline from family man to stone-cold criminal? Would you turn him in or support his every decision?
These are just a few of the questions that must be resolved in the soon-to-be released novel – Over Your Dead Body Like all relationships, sometimes there are problems that need to be addressed. During one fateful night after returning home from his co-worker's apartment, Janelle accuses her husband of adultery. There is just one catch: Preston has remained faithful up to this stage of their marriage! Underlying feelings of contempt and disdain quickly form as both Janelle and Preston allow outside influences to get the best of them as their failing marriage continue to spiral downward. A game of cat and mouse ensues as Preston and Janelle become engrossed in battle with their children as the ultimate prize. No one is safe as each character utilizes their entire array of wit, cunning, and deviousness to dispel the other's reputation. With each passing chapter, Preston becomes more determined to vindicate his image and exact revenge on his wife. With nothing else to lose, everyone becomes expendable in his eyes and consequently, all intended participants become "chess pieces" in what is considered the game of his life.
