Summary
When they meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware, Polly is set on heading west. Adam says he's also passing through. Yet they stay-- and over a punishing summer, Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other-- dangerous, even lethal, secrets. Then someone dies. Accident, or part of a plan? By now, Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other's lives and lies that neither one knows how to get away-- even if they want to. Will the truth ultimately destroy them? -- adapted from jacket blurb
Summary
A pair of travelers, one of whom may be playing a dangerous psychological game with the other, embark on a steamy summertime affair that is thrown into chaos by dark secrets and a suspicious death, in a story inspired by the classics of James M. Cain
