Description

Two things happened to Martin Miller within the space of a few days. First he learned that his ex-wife Stephanie was wanted by the police for her involvement in a multi million pound fraud and then that she had purportedly been drowned whilst trying to flee the country. Although her body was never found and their married life had been proven to have been nothing but a sham, Miller still mourned for her even though they had lived totally different lives. However months later he is involved in an minor incident in London which is followed up by a mysterious telephone call from someone purporting to be Stephanie, pleading for his help. Although sceptical he agrees to meet and to his surprise learns that she is still alive and had arranged her own death in order to escape both the police and the other members of the group involved in the fraud. These men had now found out that she was still alive and were after their share of the stolen cash. Despite his best intentions not to get too deeply involved Miller finds himself giving her aid and assistance and in the process is drawn into a world where murder and destruction are the norm and that the people after her will let nothing stand in their way to get what they consider is theirs, but once again he finds that she has duped him and abruptly leaves his life. Determined to forget about her Miller ploughs himself back into his work when a letter from a French notary arrives, advising him of the death of a Juliette Lafitte, a woman who he does not know. He is advised that there are some papers for him to collect personally and a transaction that can only be concluded in person. Out of curiosity he goes to Normandy and on arrival eventually finds out that the mysterious Lafitte was in fact Stephanie. Certain that she is finally dead Miller is torn as to what to do as even from the grave she will not let him go for she begs him to avenge her but wanting to dissociate himself from everything she was associated with completely refuses to countenance such actions until events in England, when his best friends are murdered, force him to abandon his stance. Vowing to find their killer he learns that danger lurks around every corner and that sometimes things and people are not all that they seem, that deception and crime go hand in hand and that there will always be secrets between a man and his wifeshow more
