Joe, struggling to survive in a high-powered law firm, is faced with the challenge of finding his childhood friend, Jenna, who has been missing for four years. But has she disappeared through choice? Or is she under the powerful influence of her husband, the restless, troubled Chetwood?
For Joe, the search is a matter of duty, but also of conscience, for he introduced them to each other; he was enthralled by them both. Helped by his prickly girlfriend, Sarah, Joe manages to find the beautiful, faded Jenna - only to realise too late that he has set some terrible events in motion.
"A beautifully crafted and engrossing thriller. The plot is both sinuous and surprising, the characterisations true and secure." ( Daily Mail)
