When friend Anne "buys" the new deputy for loan officer Mary Brock at the local charity auction, neither she nor Mary know what has been brought into their lives.
At a little over six feet, slim, with wavy blond hair, Billy Joe Wilkins is enough to make most women dream of snuggling on the beach, the ocean's waves crashing rhythmically.
Mary discovers - to her delirious delight - that Billy's lovemaking more than fulfills the promise of the dream. But when his demands begin to include Mary's complete domination, physically and emotionally, it all begins to seem more like a nightmare she can't escape.
But Mary is trapped by her own feelings, reeling between what she knows she should do and what Billy says she must do. She becomes obsessed with escape.
And what about her son? What about Michael? He's being caught in the middle of her emotional tug-of-war. Will he become a victim too?
Can Mary find the courage to take control of the situation?
*Praise for The Perfect Victim*
"Foster has the gift of painting a scene so remarkably vivid that it's as though the reader has stepped through Alice's looking glass and can see, feel, smell and even taste the world she's created. She offers up characters who are just as vividly present as they reveal their hearts and souls with no reservations. She has one of the most unique writing voices."
