Description

He was a rolling stone. She was pure Miss Porter. Somehow, in the monied hills of rural Jersey, they came together. Now he's robbed her mother blind and slipped away into the night. What everyone wants to know is: Did he do it for true love or did he do it for the money?Some people know him as Michael Standowski, others as Mike Standish. But right now no one knows where he is and only a few know why he has suddenly disappeared. His beautiful wife, Sarah Louise Browne, knows. His rich and hard-hearted mother-in-law, "Iron Kate," she knows. And so does his best buddy, Graham Cramer, who wishes he had never introduced Mike to Sarah in the first place.The trouble starts when Mike and his bride are forced to live under his mother-in-law's roof and prying eyes. Kate won't let Mike forget that he was born on the wrong side of the tracks. Finally, after one slur too many, Mike puts a simple plan into action. He backs an empty truck up to the front door of Kate's mansion and fills it with her most valuable antiques.Too bad he leaves his fingerprints behind.On the lam in the Bahamas, Mike is forced to take a hard look at his life and at his relationship with the woman he has loved and betrayed. As he desperately tries to find a way out of this mess, and as his pursuers close in on him, a mighty storm is heading for the Caribbean. And in the eye of Hurricane Bertha, the man who has never been honest about anything may finally see the truth... and a terrible way out of his predicament.If he survives.
