Nothing and nobody -- except maybe a mother who, almost two years later, changes her mind and wants her little boy back. This book was made into a movie by the same title

"Veronica Delaney, single, in her twenties, a freelance writer, while working on an article becomes involved with a dazzling, charismatic man, and she is turned inside out. With his unique storytelling gifts, Avery Corman creates a wonderful, identifiable female character whose circumstance parallels that of so many women ... and then it begins to turn. Is this boyfriend a typically uncommitted male or is he hiding something? Is he wonderfully supportive or is he excessively manipulative? Is he dramatically high-maintenance or is he inherently evil? From this insightful novelist, here is a spellbinding tale that is true-to-life, deeply involving, and ultimately, terrifying"--Publisher's description

Paul Brock, a writer struggling with the realities of getting his first novel published, approaches his old friend Mel Steiner for assistance. Mel, a music-business mogul and a modern-day Barnum, decides to package Paul as a celebrity, since books by celebrities often become bestsellers.
