Detective Harry Jordan sees his lake home as a respite from solving crimes on the streets of Boston. The Osborne family views their cottage as a way for the family to avoid the distractions of life--especially Wally Osborne, a famous horror writer who appears to need the peace and quiet more than anyone.

As is Diz Osborne, the youngest Osborne son who, unbeknownst to any of them, carries a weighty secret about who else he saw rowing on the lake that night.

"Shocked and saddened by the mysterious death of her father, Shannon Keeffe traveled all the way from New York to Ardnavarna, the once grand ancestral estate that lay cradled in the green hills of Connemara, Ireland. Had her father really committed suicide, as she had been told? Or had he been the victim of a vicious murder? Shannon hoped that by returning to the family home, she would find the key that would lead her to the truth. While Ardnavarna was no longer the site of annual hunts and lavish balls, it still crackled with life. Feisty, aristocratic Maudie Molyneux was current mistress of the Big House. At eighty-something (she could no longer quite remember) she still wore high heels and vintage designer dresses at dinner. When young Shannon arrived unannounced, Maudie welcomed her with open arms. Determined to help the distraught girl, the old lady set out to tell the family history as she knew it. Night after night, they sat in front of a roaring fire. The scent of peat smoke mingled with Maudie's French perfume as she recreated the past for Shannon. Maudie began with her memories of the beautiful, impetuous Lily Molyneux. Once the center of an adoring family, Lily had been banished from her beloved Ardnavarna after a rape that resulted in her pregnancy. Forced to find a new life, Lily sailed to America. Using her dark beauty and beguiling ways, Lily managed not only to survive but to reach the highest levels of Boston society. Yet even as she triumphed, she could not forget the tragedies of her past. Whether a victim of circumstance or of her own willful nature, Lily succeeded in creating chaos in the lives of all those who came within her orbit. With her careless charm, she divided brothers and broke up families. She abandoned one of her children and doted on the other to the point of suffocation. For them, loving Lily was a curse, whose effects spread into the following generations"--Page 2 and 3 of cover
