It's summertime in Monaco, and Oz Blackstone, now an international film star, is sitting on the verandah of his opulent mansion gazing idly at luxury yachts in the harbour. Life doesn't get much better than this. But somebody knows where he lives. A struggling author sweet-talks him into buying the movie rights to his latest novel for $50,000, and a shocking trap is laid.
The demons of the past begin to creep up on Oz's sunny life, and blackmail and murder lurk in the shadows. And when organised crime muscles in on the picture, Oz gets perilously close to losing a lot more than his wealth and reputation.
