They meet 20 years later when Gabriel and her dad and involved in an accident, and affair is rekindled. Gabriel ends up dead in a suicide in which Genny assisted. Or did she? Was it an assisted suicide? Or murder? Was she enraged at Gabriel, or did she kill him because of her screwed up relationship with her father?.

This was listed under "erotica" on To me, It isn't! But, even though it is not what I would normally choose to read, it is so well written it actually brought me to tears in the end. For that, I just had to give it 5 stars. It seems I've read a lot of duds lately. This is what good writing reads like!!
A moderately entertaining thriller - some interesting tidbits about the contemporary art world, but nothing especially memorable.

This was a test for me to try mystery again. Didn't really do it for me. Not my style.
Amazing! I'm a sucker for beautiful and haunting love stories such as this. Recommended!
Hauntingly romantic.
