Hidden beneath the rich veneer, the fashionable couture and her outlandish lifestyle, are secrets that Caroline Vogt will keep within her vestibule locked away forever and never disclosed. Someone invaded her privacy and learned about this event in her past and a note demanding a million dollars was sent to her by an unknown blackmailer. Frantic yet organized in her thoughts she summons her goddaughter to her home. With no thought to the reason for her demanded visit and wondering what this will entail, Emma Streat is about to walk into a powder keg of danger, explosions and intrigue.
Entering her godmother’s home is like entering a five-star hotel with every amenity available. Caroline is distraught and relates the information in the note, the fact that she complied and sent the money to the kidnappers, now she wants Emma to get it back.
Presuming that her ex-husband is the one that made the demands and thinking he’s in Paris, she does not ask but states that Emma will go in pursuit of him. Why does she agree?
Plans are made but first she must connect with someone from her past in order to learn the possible location of Pierre Hallam. Things are not as well-oiled as they seem to be in Caroline’s mind. Emma has a moral dilemma and must contact an ex-lover named Rodale hoping he can help her
locate a Hallam. Next, she must contact Breck Langer , Caroline’s money manager to find out who cashed the check and where. But, something about him sent you red flags and Emma must investigate and learn more. Even her godmother’s assistant has a nagging feeling that he’s hiding something and even though she mistrusts him a plan is formed, and the result will shock not only readers but Caroline too. Even before she can get a plan more in place someone enters her home, attacks Caroline and forced Emma into action but will Caroline survive the brutality? If that is not horrific enough, Emma is pushed into traffic waiting for a taxi and is seriously shaken up and bruised. Who wants her out of?
