When the rich, successful husband of a beautiful New York actress mysteriously disappears, she plunges into a desperate search to find him...and into a menacing web of secrets, deception, and danger. Once again Judith McNaught, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Night Whispers, crafts a thrilling tale filled with unrelenting suspense, unforgettable characters, and powerful undercurrents of greed, ambition, and desire.
Leigh Kendall reveled in her stellar Broadway acting career, and her marriage to Logan Manning, scion of an old New York family. When her husband finds an old country cottage, he decides to build their dream house, and to surprise Leigh with her first view of the mountain property. After a Sunday night performance, Leigh heads north to join him, and into a blinding blizzard. Lost and alone, she's run off the road. When she awakes in the local hospital, seriously injured, she asks for her husband. The police arrive to inform her that he has mysteriously disappeared, and Leigh, although obviously distraught, becomes the focus of their suspicions.
The more she discovers about her husband and his business affairs, the less she realizes she knew about Logan Manning and the more terrified she becomes. Now, with no one to help her, she is heading deeper and deeper into unknown territory...where friends and enemies are impossible to distinguish, and where the truth becomes the most terrifying weapon of all.
