At First Sight by Stephen J. Cannell, Scott Brick

Meet Chick Best—a middle-aged, self-absorbed California millionaire. Other than his house and high-priced foreign cars, Chick’s most expensive possession is his trophy wife, Evelyn. Evelyn is good at spending Chick’s money, money that has pretty much run out. Another problem is his drug-addled sixteen-year-old daughter, Melissa. Though concerned about his family, Chick has resigned himself to a miserable state of acceptance. That is, until he, Evelyn, and Melissa take a Christmas vacation in Maui. With this, Chick’s life changes.…

Chick experiences unrequited love at first sight when he observes Paige Ellis emerging from the hotel swimming pool. His obsession, exceeded only by his need to possess her, isn’t diminished when he learns that she is happily married. Instead, Chick’s obsession compels him to drive to Paige’s house, where he runs down and kills her husband. Chick’s life begins to spiral homicidally out of control, resulting in the destruction of everything he holds dear. Will Paige learn the truth about Chick before it’s too late?

Fast paced, filled with wry humor, murder, lust, and dead-on L.A. characterizations, Cannell has written his most explosive novel yet.

Awesome writer, great and funny (at times) story. Charles "Chick" Best first spots his dream woman while vacationing in Hawaii. The problem? She's married. So's he. Drama and sometimes hilarity soon follow. I would also recommend: King Con and the Shane Scully series by the same author. You may also like the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

Very fast read. Plot seemed pretty predictable, until the end, when it turned out that I hadn't really figured it all out! Good book for a rainy day read.
