Summary
Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to be sexy and beautiful. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years. Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it's suicide. Returning home to Maine, Harry and Alice will help each other pick up of the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his father. Grace McGowan claims to be new to the area, but Harry suspects she is not a complete stranger to his family. Alice begins to come on to him in a clearly sexual way. Soon Harris fears that both women are hiding dangerous secrets... and that neither one is telling the truth. -- adapted from jacket
