When Sloane, an unsuccessful painter but a successful forger, is released from prison after taking part in a high-profile art scam, he finds a letter from a woman with whom he had a passionate affair in his youth. On her death bed she tells him that years ago she gave birth to a daughter - his daughter - Connie, from whom she has since become estranged. She implores Sloane to find her and make peace between them. Sloane agrees - but when eventually he finds Connie she is locked into a highly charged relationship with Vincent Delaney, a man whom the police believe has killed once and will not hesitate to kill again. Initially rebuffed by Connie, Sloane has to decide whether to walk away or stay and fight for her. As the police dig deeper into Delaney's business affairs and begin to uncover underworld associations, so Sloane comes to understand the depths of violence which bind Connie and Delaney together. And the more Delaney feels cornered and under pressure, the more unpredictable and dangerous he becomes...
