   schema:description ""Days before her wedding, Charlie, training for a triathlon, decides to go for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Somewhere in the water an engine begins to rev. Before long a mysterious figure on a speeding Jet Ski makes an attempt on her life. The children head the list of suspects - but which one plotted her death? The oldest son, who runs the family business? The daughter, whose art gallery depends on Steven's generosity? Or the Hollywood son, desperate for funding for his next picture?" "But Charlie refuses to give in to their campaign of intimidation. After the wedding, a second attack backfires and mistakenly kills her husband when their whaler is blown up, making her a wealthy heiress. Now Charlie is the most likely suspect, even though it appears that the bomb was intended for her. The children accuse her of murdering their father. Is Charlie a ruthless fortune hunter or the innocent victim of her husband's greedy heirs?"--Jacket."@en ;
