What would you do if, out of the blue, your reliable husband disappears? Then you are told he has been involved in money-laundering. Surely the man you know intimately couldn't be a criminal...could he? When Felix Kendall vanishes, his wife Kate is left in turmoil. As she and their children adjust to a hand-to-mouth existence, she looks back on her marriage and Felix's orphaned upbringing in search of clues, confronting the possibility that she has badly misread him. And as Kate gradually discovers strengths she never knew she had, many miles away Felix is coming to terms with just what he has done and lost. This compelling story of deception and self-deception, compromise and second chances questions how far we can know even those closest to us as it probes beneath society's veneer -- in times of adversity, friends fall away and the most unexpected people step forward. With her characteristic wry wit, Clare Morrall delivers a thought-provoking, profoundly affecting and inspiring tale.
