Cal West’s haunted life of wealth and ease is about to end in a ravine above California’s Central Coast. After days in the wreck of his vintage Corvette, Cal is discovered by Anna Greene, a headstrong environmentalist. In a delirium of deprivation and gratitude, he sees a singular chance to turn his life around, to find meaning and love with Anna at his side, but she despises that Cal lives off his father’s rapacious land developments. She wants nothing to do with him.Swift and unforeseen events take Cal and Anna to Berlin, where buried crimes and secrets await them. Their return to California sees old frictions eclipsed by a far greater need to confront their changing lives, now entwined, and fast becoming unrecognizable.
