Sometimes, love is found in the most unexpected places. Sometimes,
two people find each other across a crowded room. Sometimes, love
conquers all. But only sometimes... Ellie Holmgren is no stranger
to tragedy. Her only child, eight-year-old Jamie, died during a
tonsillectomy, and while Ellie was trying to find a way to dig
herself out of her profound grief, her husband divorced her. And
now her sister, Alice, has called to tell her that Morty, Alice's
husband, has killed himself. Ellie can only think, "What next?" The
question of "What next?" is answered when Ellie reaches Alice's
home and learns that Morty didn't actually kill himself -- Alice
pulled the trigger. She confesses to Ellie that after suffering
years of abuse, she had finally had enough. Alice is considerably
older than Ellie, and the two have never been particularly close,
but the possibility that Alice could be tried for murder shocks
Ellie into action. She arranges the body to look like a suicide and
then calls the police. One of the homicide detectives who shows up
to investigate is Teo Domingos, an angry, battle-scarred Vietnam
vet. He takes one look at Morty's body, observes the way Ellie and
Alice cling to each other, and decides it couldn't have been a
suicide, that Alice probably did it. His partner overrules him,
whereupon Teo loses his famous temper one time too many and is
placed on disability. Restless, edgy, but sure of his instincts,
Teo takes it upon himself to look into Morty's death on his own. As
the pieces fall together, things become even more complicated, and
the lives of Teo, Ellie, and Alice connect, intertwine, and unravel
to reveal well-kept secrets and lies. As Teo digs deeper, his
relationship with Ellie goes from professional to personal, and he
finds himself falling in love. Love is something Teo hasn't
bargained for. It opens up doors that have been closed for years.
It forces him to deal with his own messed-up but genuinely loving
family and to face his own deepest feelings and fears. Ellie, too,
undergoes her own reawakening when Alice convinces Ellie to go with
her to the family ranch, where she ultimately reveals not one, but
two shocking secrets... Weighing the ties of love that make and
break a family, The End of Marriage is irresistibly touching,
funny, and true.
