Your Blue-Eyed Boy

Производитель: "Penguin Group"

There are things you should know about blackmail... At 38, Simone has responsibilities: she`s a district judge with two small boys, and a husband on the verge of bankruptcy and breakdown. When she receives a letter post-marked New York she has no idea that opening it will threaten all she has worked for and call into question her judgement. For the photographs contained in the letter remind her of things she regrets from twenty years ago, and a man she`d decided to forget. But blackmail, like the heart, never forgets...
