There will always be skeptics, Michael," Dick said. "There will also always be people who make money. I never force anyone to do anything". Dick was confident and charming and Michael relaxed. The hook had been baited. Michael Kilmartin, an Irishman now settled in South Africa is a busy lawyer, bored with his life and profession. He makes the ideal target for two con artists, the elegant Dick Willoughby and the beautiful Claire Salthouse, both of whom set out to ensnare with a web of deceit. He is to be caught like a fish only discovering, too late, that he has been hoodwinked. Along the way, however, he and Claire fall in love but their love is tested by doubt, uncertainty and the lurking presence of an unscrupulous Dick in the background. The unanswered question is: What will the outcome be if Claire chooses Michael instead of the money?
