    • Synopsis
    • From the pinnacle of literature as a back-to-back best-selling author, Eric Leeman plummets to the depths of alcoholic depression after a controversial release: High Conspiracy. But a fortuitous meeting with Stephen Barkley, a close friend from Eric’s college days, offers Eric an opportunity at professional redemption. Eric accepts Stephen’s offer to write a non-fictional work chronicling the history of Stephen’s family and their global business empire. In the course of Eric’s research, a detective who has been investigating Stephen for several years reveals to Eric shocking murderous suspicion about Stephen as well as an elaborate cover-up by Stephen’s powerful family. And the detective may not be the only one who knows the secrets in Stephen Barkley’s
      past. Mysterious packages and notes provoke an angry and paranoid reaction from Stephen. He shares the disturbing deliveries with his influential father who immediately suspects blackmail. Meanwhile, for reasons of her own, Stephen’s sister, Laura starts checking the background of her sister-in-law, Beatrice Leclerc Barkley. Stephen’s abusive nature toward Beatrice is only exacerbated by the accusing messages he receives, and Beatrice seeks compassion from the couple’s friend Eric Leeman. When Stephen is killed, the police arrest Beatrice and charge her with his murder. Eric’s work-in-progress becomes a tale of hidden secrets and betrayal. The high stakes include more than a possible prison sentence for Beatrice. An immense financial fortune, love and personal
      vendettas all figure into the complex story.
