Shortly after the charming Marilyn manages to gain the trust of the owner of her intended caper, she burglarizes the establishment on the most prominent night of the year.

Will she end up causing his demise? Will he be able to help a young woman who intends to help herself to the family millions, and maybe even his life? How far does love travel when its steps are taken by the cold, calculating Marilyn?
This was a perfect Mystery/Thriller with just enough Romance to seal the deal. The narrator Jessica Anderson had the best voice to tell such a compelling story...about a woman lost in a man's world. 5 star overall performance and storyline!
