In this riveting tale of psychological suspense, a divorce
lawyer risks her career, her sanity, and her life when she
falls into an illicit, all-consuming affair with her client
â€”who becomes the primary suspect in his estranged wifeâ€™s
Young divorce lawyer Francine Day has methodically built
her career doing everything right. Sheâ€™s one big case away
from securing her place among Londonâ€™s legal elite. But
when she meets her new client, Martin Joy, the natural
caution that has protected Francine and fueled her rise
melts away. Powerless to fight the irresistible magnetism
between them, client and counsel tumble into a blistering
affair that breaks every rule.
Though Martin insists his marriage is over, Francine
doesnâ€™t quite believe him. Certain details heâ€™s told her
donâ€™t quite add up. Consumed with a passion she cannot
control and increasingly obsessed with Martinâ€™s
relationship with his wife, Donna, Francine follows the
woman one night . . . and discovers her having dinner with
her supposedly soon-to-be-ex-husband.
The next morning, Francine awakens in her neighborâ€™s
apartment with blood on her clothes and no recollection of
what transpired after she spied Donna and Martin together.
Then Francine receives more devastating news: Martinâ€™s wife
has vanished. That dinner was the last place anyone has
seen Donna Joy alive.
Suddenly, Francine finds herself caught in a dangerous
labyrinth of deception, lies, and secrets, in which one
false move could lead to her undoing. What happened that
night and why canâ€™t Francine remember? Where is Donna and
who is responsible for her disappearance? The further
Francine goes to find answers, the tighter the net seems to
drawâ€”around her lover, herself, and the life sheâ€™s
