A street hustler-turned-wealthy businessman races to extricate his childhood sweetheart from the arms of her fiancé before it’s too late

When Guy Curran, a streetwise hustler from the wrong side of the tracks, falls in love with good-girl Leonora, he knows that one day she will be his wife. But as life leads the two down different paths, Guy’s obsessive love takes a murderous turn. Convinced that Leonora’s respectable family has conspired against him, Guy struggles to extricate himself from a complex web of half-truths and artful lies—with a hit man’s bullet. With expert pacing and rich characterization, Rendell artfully constructs an ever-widening spiral of paranoia and desire.
