Though Tim Hagan appears wistful and sweet, beneath his polite veneer
and boyishly handsome face lies a rage as deep as the ocean, and a
conflict as sharp as a dagger. He needs a woman to save him from his
gruesome past - and those who fail will simply become part of it.
Usually decisive and in command, thirty-something Ruth Lasseter finds
herself on shaky ground. In order to mask an office affair, she must
bring an escort to the company dance - someone who can play the part of
paramour with convincing precision. Finally she makes her choice: Tim
Hagan seems a suitable young man. The darkness torn from that single
night will consume Ruth with a need for vengeance and strip her life to
the bone. But as Ruth penetrates the very heart of madness, she finds
herself irrevocably locked in a chilling dance to the death.
