Book Report: Murder, mayhem and other delights
How's this for a plot? Mild-mannered accountant Walter Cousins puts his wife Lydia in a sanatorium when she becomes temporarily unbalanced, then takes on a 15-year-old British girl, Diane, as an au pair to take care of his kids.
Then he sleeps with Diane. Then Diane gets pregnant. Then Diane refuses an abortion. Then Diane has a baby.
Then Diane turns out to be a blackmailer and gouges $250 a month from Walter for "child support."
