A scandalously sinful, unputdownable thriller by bestseller Una-Mary Parker, available in ebook for the first time.

We are all conjurors in our own way, Julia thought as she looked at Douglas, the man who had created a fairy tale world for them. But was it an illusion?

It is their wedding anniversary and Douglas and Julia Rutherford are giving the party of the year. With their family and friends gathered around them, it seems nothing can jeopardise their happiness. But even Douglas cannot conceal the turmoil caused by the arrival of an uninvited guest, whose revelation of a shameful secret forces them to come to terms with betrayal, a tragic death and a charge of murder from which there is no magical escape. Their love for each other takes on a new dimension but whether they can survive depends on their ability to face the truth.
