Synopses & Reviews
John Waters is a man happy with his lot in life: genuine satisfaction with his growing business, contentment with the ease of family routines, and the pleasures of watching his daughter bloom. But this happiness is hard-won, and may be less stable than he would like to believe.
Years earlier, Waters escaped an obsessive love affair with the ravishing but disturbed Mallory Candler, a love that he feared might consume him. Mallory disappeared after Waters married, and later he heard that she had been killed in New Orleans. Now, however, he has the uneasy feeling that the secrets they shared have resurfaced to trouble him and entice him once again.
