Julia is hopelessly in love with her best friend Ralph, who in turn is tormented by desire for his beautiful cousin Ingrid. Ralph is devastated when Ingrid leaves to start a new life, marrying a much older art dealer in New York. But on the morning of September 11th, 2001, she has an appointment in downtown Manhattan and is never seen again. Since Ralph cannot travel due to chronic illness, he asks Julia to investigate what happened. She makes the journey to New York - and finds herself drawn into Ingrid's brief and troubled life more than she could have ever imagined. The dark secret that Ingrid had uncovered in her husband's past, and her attraction to violence, causes Julia to discover disturbing feelings in herself she never realised she had. As Julia unravels the mystery of what happened to her friend, so she becomes increasingly ensnared in a sinister web of deceit.
