Description - Sneaky People by Thomas Berger
Buddy Sandifer is the natty owner of a used-car lot in the 1930s American Midwest. He is the father of Ralph, a sex-obsessed 15-year old, and the husband of Naomi, a seemingly boring housewife. Laverne is his mistress, a former prostitute who insists on Buddy's promise to divorce his wife. Buddy has a more drastic plan for Naomi - he plans on hiring someone to kill her. The Midwestern setting of SNEAKY PEOPLE provides a steady stream of quirky characters and a dry, dusty sense of place to emphasize their languid humanity and contrast the deep passions that drive their actions. As Buddy handles the planning of his wife's murder, Naomi hides a literary secret, and Ralph explores new sexual territory, the hidden truths of their lives will come to the surface with surprising consequences.
