Playwright Julia Sturgis detested her brother-in-law, Richard Newton. He had twice ruined her life: once by marrying money instead of her, and again, after she had found happiness with his brother, by withdrawing his investment in their small firm, thereby hastening his brother's death. Julia would have refused Richard and his wife's invitation to spend a weekend at their luxurious country home, but her lover, Tony, persuaded her to go. Suddenly Julia was at the heart of a drama more suspenseful than any she might have written - one involving kidnapping, murder and financial chicanery.
