How tragic it is when a caged spirit finally finds it's freedom and - entranced in its ecstasy - is invited by that freedom into a cloaked dance with danger.
In Book One of this three-part epic, Kate Simmons - young and alluring, and finally out of her cage of grief - attracts more than attention. Intoxicated by her new found independence, a blithe Kate is on her way to finding out that around the corners of life, some life-changing eye-openers await. As the story continues in Book Two and she begins to churn a dangerously turbulent trail, it is Kate who now has to snap to, to react, to outrun, or become yet another tortured victim who vanishes down the path of wrong choice.
Having already roiled the risky waters of jealousy, Kate moves in with Neil while Roger - an enamored oddity - visits his son in Germany. Upon his return and finding Kate gone, Roger's predator mind becomes unhitched, and then unleashed, on the hunt of a lifetime. But whose life?
Step by creeping step, even as Kate's future closes in on her, she attends - obliviously - to her new life, working through the challenges of fresh relationships, losing family members both to death and to deceit, questioning the depth of love. Every path offers a choice. Every choice offers a consequence. And every consequence summons its due. As emotions swirl across fateful days and nights, some in Kate's life will reach out to touch happiness in warm embraces, others to sever ties in bloody traces.
