Delia Jamison is a gorgeous woman at the pinnacle of her career as anchor of a network news show in Los Angeles. But she is being blackmailed by someone she is certain is one of her former lovers. Terrified to go to the police for fear the story will leak and cause a scandal, Delia is at her wits' end when she runs into none other than one of those former lovers, Johnny Lightfoot. Johnny is now an Academy Award-winning screenwriter who feels the old attraction for Delia rising again.
Johnny agrees to help her find the culprit, which means she has to produce a list of the suspects. And what a list it is: moguls on the New York Stock Exchange, a stellar Ivy League professor, even a United States senator. As Johnny's investigation delves deeper into Delia's past, it exposes more than he ever wanted to know. As the story moves to its frightening climax, Johnny Lightfoot finds himself entangled in a web of deceit and savage sexual violence that makes him wonder if he ever knew Delia at all.
