From the cover: “John Waters is a successful petroleum geologist with the perfect family. Then one day his world is turned inside out by a single word spoken from the lips of a beautiful stranger. That word, "Soon…", sends him hurtling back in time, to a past he has never quite forgotten — the most passionate affair of his life. Mallory Candler was the quintessential Southern Belle. But her captivating beauty and intelligence hid a dark side only John Waters was allowed to see. When her seething passion threatened to destroy them both, he ended their affair and moved on, choosing stability and sanity over ecstasy. Mallory too married and had children, but she never stopped trying to reconcile with Waters until the day she was found raped and murdered on a New Orleans pier. Now, ten years after her death, a woman named Eve Sumner appears, bearing not just Mallory’s smile, but also secrets only Mallory herself could know. Convinced by his best friend that he imagined the first incident, Waters attends a party and crosses paths with Eve Sumner again. In a crowded room with Waters’ wife nearby, Eve squeezes his wrist and whispers: "You’re not imagining anything, John. It’s me. Call me." Waters’ blood runs cold. How does Eve Sumner know so much about Mallory Candler? Was their first meeting cleverly orchestrated or simply fate? Is she using knowledge of Waters’ guilt and regret to exploit him? Or has Mallory’s unique passion somehow survived beyond what Waters believed was her death? A swarm of secrets, lies and murder is about to explode in a novel where the boundaries between passion, obsession and love are stretched beyond their limits.”
