Jim Servito, an escapee from the U.S. military involvement in Vietnam, posesses a brilliant criminal mind. Cynical and remorselessly ruthless, he has a conditionless contempt for the law, police, government, and the system. He assumes rools are for fools, and takes sadistic pleasure in breaking them. The setting's center of gravity, and the fulcrum of Servito's criminal activity, is the Canadian/U.S. border. His incredible and audacious scams netted him a Cayman Island fortune, large enough to make the New York state lottery look like a Sunday school collection. Karen Taylor is tired of life in private-schools for girls, the endless doting of her wealthy parents, and the monotony of constant female company. She desperately wants out, to experience the real world, preferable on her own. Her priorities lead her to a providential meeting and endless love affair with Mike King. Cruel and unusual fate leads her to a disasterous marriage to Jim Servito. Mike King has it made. A third generation medical candidate, his future appears perfect. Then everything changes. After enduring the nightmare of his final night with Karen and disclosing his decision to his parents, he heads for British Columbia. His return a year later leads to a heart-breaking reunion with Karen, a doomed marriage, and perilous confrontation with Servito.
