7 1/2, started off great and then started dragging toward the end. Did not see that ending coming.

SPOILER ALERT: the following review is from amazon:
James Crumley's classic THE LAST GOOD KISS had me pretty riveted from start to (almost) finish, but the controversial final chapter really put me off, and left me a bit unclear as to the character's motivations for doing what they did.

Can someone explain to me why Trehearne and his first wife would kill Betty Sue when she was already leaving of her own accord? Was it because, even though she was willing to pay for her to leave, Catherine (wife #1) was so jealous of Betty Sue that she wanted her dead? Was it because of Trehearne's line "I know that I can't live without her"? The grim denouement of the story really came out of nowhere for me. And though I'm a huge fan of noir, not to mention dark endings to dark stories (CHINATOWN is an all-time favorite), here it felt wrong.
