Chapter One

"PLEASE come in and take a seat, Mrs Whitney."

Tall and slender in a navy suit, her corn-coloured hair taken up in a smooth knot, Nicola found herself ushered into a room that was solidly old-fashioned. Plum-coloured carpets, heavy velvet curtains, and above an empty fireplace a wooden mantel that held a ticking clock.

After coffee and condolences, Mr Harthill got down to business. "The last time my client was in London he asked me to draw up a new will. In my capacity as executor, I can now tell you that you are the sole beneficiary of that will."

Staring across a polished mahogany desk at the saggyjowled solicitor sitting impassively in his brown leather chair, Nicola could only manage to stutter, "I - I beg your pardon?"

"You are the sole beneficiary," Mr Harthill Senior repeated patiently. "When all the formalities have been observed, you will be a wealthy woman."

Shocked and saddened by the death of a man she had known for such a short time but liked immensely, she had kept the appointment.

The news that John Turner had made her the sole beneficiary to a fortune she hadn't been aware existed had come as a bombshell.
