Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's character to suture the deep wounds - both within his family and himself - torn open by the tragedy. Moreover, as the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death continues, it is taking all of Adam's cunning to protect those closest to him from figures who still suspect that Adam's father was murdered by one of his kin. But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli - his late father's mistress; and a woman who, despite being pivotal to his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn to. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles. Yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's strived to conceal, and condemning the people he's fought so hard to protect.

'This is a high-profile death with several possible explanations. Which can be summarized as jumped, fell or pushed.' Adam Blaine returns to Martha's Vineyard out of duty rather than grief, after his father - bestselling author and celebrated human rights activist Benjamin Blaine - falls to his death. Having been estranged from his father for ten years, Adam is surprised to discover himself appointed the executor of his estate; especially as the will disinherits Adam's family, leaving their wealth and home to Ben's recent lover, young actress Carla Pacelli. Adam's mission - to undo the will and protect his blood, whether innocent or guilty, from criminal charges - forces him to confront his own past, and pulls him into a labyrinth of lies, deception and betrayal . . .
