“A witty and entertaining look at our dark sides.” —Kirkus Reviews
Robert Saunders is a newspaper editor with a Volvo, a place in the suburbs, and a marriage that’s getting dull.
Kathy Becker, who works at the same newspaper, has no doubt that Robert deserves a better wife. Her. Kathy is smart, focused, and pretty. Robert hardly knows what hits him, especially when Kathy starts seducing him in secluded corners of their building.
Soon Robert knows he’s in love. He’s ready for a hot new marriage. But Anne Saunders isn’t going to give up her husband that easily. And though she’s not usually the kind to take desperate measures, she decides to defend what is hers.
Suspenseful and harrowing, sometimes funny and often sexy, Too Easy is the “unwed mother of all page-turners…. So well written it’s frightening” (Kinky Friedman, author of Elvis, Jesus & Coca-Cola). It’s a stylish psychological thriller about the bad decisions we make in life and love.
Bruce Deitrick Price is the author of American Dreams, The Man Who Falls in Love with His Wife, Big Dog, Art and Beauty and The Boy Who Saves The World. His novel Too Easy was translated into French, German and Dutch. An artist and a poet (Theoryland), he also writes extensively about education and founded Improve-Education.org in 2005. His latest book is Saving K-12 – What Happened to Our Public Schools? How Do We Fix Them?. Price’s forte is explaining the flawed theories and methods found throughout the public schools. He believes that if we don’t save the public schools, we won’t save much else. Price is the country's most prolific and aggressive writer on education. Reformers in Italy found his work and invited him to speak at the Pensare Oltre conference in Milan during October 2017. This elite Italian group refers to Price as a "famous American scholar.” He lives in Virginia Beach.
“Price writes extremely well....The book's pace is breezy and mile-a-minute, kind of like New York City where the tale is played out…. You will smile at the author’s wonderful phrases.”
– The Washington Times
“Erotic intrigue…. Too Easy employs a kind of continuous stream of consciousness in a voice that's snappy and macho.”
– Book World
“A steamy exploration of Manhattan mores…. The book moves rapidly, almost breathlessly, with clever touches.”
– Cleveland Plain Dealer
“As the answers unfold and the narrative plunges on to its surprising ending, Price catches the reader in a spellbinding account of the inner thoughts of his characters, as the simple mushrooms into the complex and right and wrong fuse.”
– The Daily Press
“Certainly, this is a man who has female friends: his girl talk is top class…. The film contract is probably already on his agent’s desk. Too Easy the movie could have been made in gritty and glamorous 1940s black-and-white, with Ann Baxter as Anne, Kirk Douglas as Robert and Joan Crawford as Kathy….The point of the story is how easy – too easy – it is to slip from wanting something badly to doing bad things in order to get it.”
