Summary
"Since his wife's death at sea, San Francisco Police Detective Michael O'Higgins has been paralyzed by grief and shame--unable to care for their teenaged daughter, who saw her mother swept away, and unable to deal with the daily requirements of his job. Almost a year after his wife's death, O'Higgins takes a ferry ride as part of his therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. On the boat, he meets a charming Indian family: successful young husband, two lovely daughters, and a kind, beautiful wife and mother. O'Higgins has no idea that he will meet this woman again on his first day back after bereavement leave, when he and his partner are called to a Nob Hill mansion to investigate a homicide. The victim is the handsome man O'Higgins met on the ferry, and his wife, Asha Chaundhry, is the obvious suspect"--Amazon.com
