Members of the Porteous family, including a pair of poisonous daughters, believe that they alone are entitled to the dead man’s wealth. They all regard Di as a gold-digging interloper—all except Thomas’s adoring grandson, who is torn between his loyalty to his parents and the intriguing widow.
As tensions rise like a tide, lethal secrets surface—secrets that expose Di’s shocking past. To survive, she must now discover the weaknesses of her enemies. With the help of an unlikely collection of loners and eccentrics, she sets a trap to expose their evil greed. And on the night they are lured to the house, Di will be ready.
