Cruising on his yacht off the rugged coast of Corsica, Harry Stanford, one of the world's wealthiest men, drowns under mysterious circumstances. In a chain of events that reverberates around the globe, a beautiful young woman appears at the family gathering following the funeral in Boston, claiming to be the tycoon's daughter and thus heir to a share of his estate. As the highly respected Stanford family seeks to learn whether she is genuine or an imposter, a hidden web of blackmail, drugs, and murder emerges from behind the facade of fame and glamour.
From the splendors of the Italian Riviera to the fashion salons of Paris and New York, from the elite parlors of Back Bay to the social register of Florida's Hobe Sound, Sidner Sheldon's story twists and turns its way through smoke and mirrors toward the explosive surprise ending.
