A thrilling tale of murder, lies, and lust, from master storyteller Sidney Sheldon
When an elderly multimillionaire is found brutally murdered in his Hollywood home, his young wife raped and beaten, and his art and jewels stolen, the motive seems pretty clear. But when the investigation doesn't turn up a single lead, the case is closed and his stunning widow vanishes.
Nearly a decade later, the victim's son, Matt Daley, makes a shocking discovery: three murders identical to his father's have taken place across the globe in recent years. In each case the widow, the sole beneficiary of the will, donates everything to children's charities.
As the case is reopened and another murder discovered, Matt becomes besotted with the latest widow until she, too, disappears. It's only a matter of time before the killer strikes again.
