Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness
What happens when the woman who has everything loses everything? And when the man who has nothing realizes he has nothing to lose? Grace Brookstein is the very young, naïve wife of financial superstar Lenny Brookstein. Lenny is a billionaire many times over with estates all over the world, a fleet of yachts, and a life that is the stuff of fantasy. He and Grace live in New York where Lenny is revered as King of the Wall Street social scene. A noted philanthropist, he is both liked and respected in the worlds of high finance and high society. When the stock market goes into a terrifying freefall, the Brooksteins' glamorous lifestyle of Palm Beach polo tournaments and G5 jets is barely touched. That is, until the day Lenny goes sailing one weekend from their Nantucket beach estate and never comes home. When his abandoned yacht is found far out to sea, the police investigation reveals Brookstein's death was no accident. The famous investor was involved in some sort of spectacular fraud and was about to be exposed by someone close to him. But as Lenny's malfeasance comes to light, Grace learns there was more to his boating "accident" than she originally thought. And suddenly her life may be in danger too...
