Overview

It might have been just another messy marital triangle with routine melodrama: the stale marriage, the affair—his and hers—and the recriminations. But volatile passions intersected in a manner not unlike the coupling of an explosive and a detonator. Mark Shapiro is a handsome, enormously successful cardiac surgeon with a loving wife, an adoring son, plenty of money and a nightmare in the making. As successful as he is, he hungers for more notoriety and is drawn into believing a mysterious and alluring woman he has met will bring it to him. He also hungers for her. It is an out-of-control type of appetite, nothing short of sexual obsession. All marriages have ups and downs, but when Mark learns who “Mr. Tuesday” is, his wife’s lover, his rage is not diminished by his own affair. One night, still irresistibly drawn to the other woman—whose promise has turned to horror—he learns more than he ever wanted to know about the palpable dangers of ambition.

Joel Block is a psychologist whose beginnings were not encouraging. A stepchild twice and a troublemaker as often as possible, he was told he wrote the way he spoke and he didn’t speak well at all. Being oppositional, he was inspired and went from least likely to succeed to earning a doctorate, honors, two medical school clinical faculty appointments and authoring over twenty books and countless articles.
