Generations of Westbrookes are venerated for transforming the sleepy coastal hamlet of Eagle Bay into a thriving city. So when Thomas Westbrooke's wife, Skye, alleges to friends and authorities that her admired husband is psychotic and threatening, it seems impossible. That is not the humanitarian and respected civic leader they think they know. The renowned prodigy could never be guilty of twisted vengeance-especially murder.
Unbeknownst to all, Thomas's upbringing under his domineering and troubled father leaves scars that have yet to mend. He remains the face of a family empire funded by a cache of extraordinary relics related to one of the world's fabled antiquities. This secretive wealth becomes Thomas's mesmerizing obsession.
Thomas accepts that no one can simultaneously serve good and evil and that a life of deception will lead to guilt and regret. He struggles to reconcile his fixation on the historical artifacts, an intense yearning to deceive, and his failure to live admirably with the only woman he's ever truly loved.
Skye's children, Johnny and Dakota, are confused by Thomas's strange conduct. Inexplicable events and personal observations make Johnny suspicious about who his adoptive father might really be. Johnny and Dakota disagree about Thomas's devotion and intentions, straining their relationship.
Skye discovers that nothing is as it appears. People she trusts have hidden remarkable truths. Pandora's box is forced open, and many find themselves in harm's way, including Skye and the children. But she is more than a worthy adversary and will fight like hell to protect her family from a man she no longer recognizes. Meanwhile, she is committed to solving the puzzle of what really happened to her first husband. Prepare to be drawn in, spellbound, and shocked.
