Abstract:

Eden van Buren lies chained to an iron bedstead in a homemade cell. Her captor is a handsome tormented young sculptor who lives alone in the Arizona desert. He is honest, compassionate, and uninterested in money. Why then has he kidnapped Eden and demanded ten million dollars in ransom? And why does he seem intent on destroying Eden's mother? The answer lies in a half-century of desire, brutality, and betrayal?a dark skein of tangled lives and shameful secrets that spans three generations and three continents, from Franco's Spain to the cruel brutality of Vietnam, from the haut monde of Bevery Hills to exotic Costa Brava to the basement of an isolated house where Eden's captor seeks his ransom revenge. For he is more than a kidnapper; he is an avenging angel, and he represents the final piece in a puzzle of lies and deception that began with... the original sin.
