Description

Millionaire businessman Charlie Ravich is a survivor whose brutal experience as a POW in Vietnam has more than prepared him for the cut-throat world of global commerce. Now in his late fifties, with his family is dying out, Charlie is about to make his greatest speculation yet. Enter Christina, a voluptuous Ivy League whose affair with a member of a big-time theft ring has landed her in prison. After four years at Bedford Hills, she is suddenly released - perhaps because she is innocent, perhaps not. But as her past catches up with her, a harrowing chain of betrayals is set in motion that leaves only one person with any hope of a future.show more
