"It's 1973. Television producer Laura Fisher enjoys a good life: a stimulating job, dinners in trendy London restaurants, an attractive apartment. But something is missing. She is essentially alone in the world, separated from her husband, rarely seeing her policeman brother. Perhaps a child would fill the void." "There's only one problem: who should father the baby? Not her husband, whom she dislikes. Not someone from a new relationship. That might mean messy complications. So Laura goes to a bar and picks up a man for a one-night sexual encounter." "After the baby is born, Laura doesn't see the father again until she stares in horror one day at a familiar face in the newspaper. It's the man from the bar. The newspaper story tells Laura that she's made a terrible mistake, one that she and her little son, Tom, will have to live with forever." "Twenty years later, Laura owns a small television production studio offering on-camera coaching to publicity-hungry politicians and businessmen. It's not exciting work, but it pays for a good education for Tom, a rather introverted young man without many friends. Laura is relieved when he brings home a girlfriend, Emily Howard. Perhaps Emily and Tom can look to the future together as a happy young couple." "Laura and those she loves cannot escape the past, however, a past that encompasses Tom's sordid conception and Laura's own troubled early years. When a murder occurs, a circle of evil seems to have been completed. Does evil run in families? Is there a bad gene? Laura may learn the tragic answer as she fights to save her own life and the life of her child."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
