"Energetic and richly textured...If terror and murder can be rendered ladylike, Phyllis Whitney is just the lady to do it." ATLANTA JOURNAL & CONSTITUTION Susan Prentice has come home to Virgina's eastern shores, to the very spot where her mother fell to her death twenty-five years before, also the home of Alex Montoro, her proud, intense grandmother. But Susan's arrival has alarmed people who fear what may lie dormant in Susan's memory. Especially Alex. For she believes her granddaughter is the only living witness to the tragedy. Together Alex and Susan must pry open the locked doors of the past, where burning passions, dark secrets, and hidden danger must be challenged to set the present free.

display_description Family secrets are locked away at the intimidating Virginia estate of a prima ballerina in this suspenseful tale from a New York Times-bestselling author. Susan Prentice is a young nurse at a crossroads. She's broken off an engagement, the father who raised her has just died, and now she's leaving the western shores behind for a trip to her family's home on Virginia's Northern Neck-where she saw her mother fall to her death twenty-five years ago. There, Susan's grandmother, former ballet diva Alexandrina 'Alex' Vargas Montoro, proves a formidable sentinel for the family's mysterious history. At first welcomed by her long-estranged relatives, spied on by suspicious neighbors, and drawn to Peter, Alex's handsome young doctor, Susan has nothing but questions. And for every answer, there's a warning-and the fear that she has only Peter to trust in. But even the doctor's past is shaded with murder. Soon Susan will discover that she alone holds the key to her mother's suspicious death, hidden away in her shattered memories. And someone intimately close to her is prepared to bury the truth forever. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author's estate.
