Evan Wentworth, a cop from El Dorado Hills, California, is unable to overcome a traumatic tragedy he thinks he should have prevented. Bereft, he changes careers, attends New York’s Parsons School of Design and becomes a highly successful Jackson Pollock-like artist who falls in love with Aurora Banfield, his mentor and owner of an elite Tribeca art gallery. Prior to taking his final exams, Evan vacations in St. Paul and becomes embroiled in solving the murder of the controller of one of the largest charter yachting companies in Nice. He meets Danielle DuBois, a captivating young teacher from a large family, who helps him overcome the guilt he carries. Her father’s partner at Gaspard Yachting, Ryan Coltrane, becomes a prime suspect in the controller’s murder and Evan’s investigation unwittingly puts his life and her family in danger. Through lavender fields, to the ancient ramparts of St. Paul, to multi-million dollars yachts on the Côte d’Azur, this contemporary romantic suspense novel reminds us why solving a murder is both dangerous and multi-faceted. Secrets families withhold to protect one another may not always be kept with the best of intentions—sometimes creating dire consequences. Dangerous Duplicity is a search for redemption, justice among unforeseeable obstacles and the redeeming power of love.
