The story begins when Nicole Lewis, a young woman living in LA, arranges a summer-long swap of her condo for a London couple's house. She thinks it's the perfect arrangement. She's always dreamed of seeing the real London, not just the tourist spots. Within a few days of landing in London, people start following Nicole Lewis and making threats, demanding information she doesn't have. Nicole realizes she's in serious trouble, but she can't get the police to believe her. Somehow it's up to her to extricate herself.
Nicole Lewis leads a hectic life, balancing work at LA's most prestigious law firm and a long-distance romance with her English lover. Things go sideways when she tracks down a missing office mate, the firm's in-house investigator, and finds him murdered. Robert's murder, his mysterious wealth, and his inexplicable bequest make Nicole a target for the police, the paparazzi, and the killer. As Nicole's love life takes an unexpected turn, she uncovers evil and corruption among the city's most powerful people.
