A respected family man, a lawyer, pillar of the community is offered the Presidency of a major University. The former President has been fired for sexual misconduct with a student. The potential new President is to be subjected to a thorough vetting by a wily investigator hired by the University board. The lawyer, who yearns for the job, has been a man who has had a long secret life of extra-marital infidelities, especially three intensely traumatic love affairs, each of which have been mysteriously aborted by unknown circumstances. Fearful that these affairs will be exposed to the investigator and lose him the job, he retraces his steps and seeks the women with whom he has had these liaisons in an attempt to beg for their silence. He finds all but one, who is missing. The two he does find turn out to have relegated him to irrelevance and have no wish to interfere with his life and career. The mystery of the missing girlfriend and the surprise of how his affairs have been aborted make this an unusual and suspenseful story of cover-up and intrigue with a surprise denouement.

Warren Adler is best known for The War of the Roses, his masterpiece fictionalization of a macabre divorce turned into the Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated dark comedy hit starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito. In addition to the success of the stage adaptation of his iconic novel on the perils of divorce, Adler has optioned and sold film rights to more than a dozen of his novels and short stories to Hollywood and major television networks. Random Hears (starring Harrison Ford and Kirsten Scott Thomas), The Sunset Gang (starring Jerry Stiller, Uta Hagen, Harold Gould, and Doris Roberts), Private Lies, Funny Boys, Madeline's Miracles, Trans-Siberian Express, and his Fiona Fitzgerald mystery series are only a few titles that have forever left Adler's mark on contemporary American authorship from page to stage to screen.
