Show synopsis Hope Dunne has carved out a name for herself as a top photographer. In her chic Soho loft, she is content with her life, finding serenity and beauty through the lens of her camera. She isn't looking for a man or excitement. But things change when she accepts a last minute assignment in London, photographing one of the world's most celebrated writers. To Hope's surprise, Finn O'Neill exudes warmth and a boyish charm. Enormously successful, he is a perfect counterpoint to Hope's quiet, steady grace - and he's taken by her. He courts her, whisking her away to his palatial, isolated Irish estate, weaving a tapestry of tales about his family and his life. Hope finds it all absolutely dizzying - Finn's charm is undeniable. But soon cracks begin to appear in his stories: gaps in his history, a few innocent lies, bouts of jealousy...Suddenly Hope is both in love and suspicious. Alone, thousands of miles from home, her mind is reeling. Is she just being paranoid? How many lies has he told? Is it possible that this kind, loving, attentive man is hiding something even worse? With unerring insight and compassion, Danielle Steel delivers an unforgettable tale of danger and obsessive love.
