Synopsis: Warren Adler is the acclaimed author of 25 novels, published in 30 languages. Two of his books, "The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts" were made into major motion pictures. He lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and New York City. Ken and Sheila Kramer have a comfortable life and loving marriage. But when Ken is introduced to Carol, the wife of his wife's major client, we discover that she is Ken's old flame, the love of his life and the object of his sexual obsession as a young man. Carol has totally reinvented herself and married a rich husband who has no knowledge of her early life. While unbeknownst to Ken, his wife is carrying on a steamy affair with her client, Carol's husband. When love and sexual obsession again bursts into flames between Ken and Carol, the plot of this masterful black comedy thickens as both couples embark on an African Safari with startling and tragic results. The author of The War of the Roses surpasses himself with this powerful novel of love and betrayal, sexual passion and emotional obsession. It is storytelling at its dramatic best and once again shows Warren Adler's indisputable mastery of contemporary marital relationships. "A masterpiece of gallows humor." · New York Daily News "Warren Adler does for infidelity and betrayal what his The War of the Roses did for incompatibility and greed. He has with delicious tension, carved out the state of matrimony as his exclusive theater of war." · Fred Mustard Stewart, author of The Glitter and the Gold "Adler at his steamy, schemey best¿ if you enjoyed the nice nastiness of The War of the Roses, this is right up your dastardly alley. · Palm Springs Desert Sun

Warren Adler has a very fine ear for dialogue and a remarkable ability to plumb the depths of human passion and obsession. This novel should set the institution of marriage back ten years." -- Nelson DeMille, author of The Gold Coast

It's a story of love and deception among two couples with too much in common: secrets from the past . . . plans for the future . . . an African safari . . . a shocking, unexpected ending, all told with Warren Adler's special snap and crackle" -- Doris Mortman, author of Rightfully Mine
