Why does he have her name in his wallet? His unexpected arrival takes Julia back forty-five years to London, where as an impulsive young woman she'd first met Benito Moretti. A meeting that was to change her life, taking her to the glittering Gulf of Naples. There, in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Julia found herself pitted against her belligerent mother-in-law and Benito?s sinister brother in a lethal battle for her husband and children.We?re all as sick as our secrets, she remembered her father saying.
