From the beginning, the house changed everything... Lucas. Joanna. Martha. Michael. Danny. Rachel. Best friends since college, they are brought together at beautiful Stoneborough Manor when Lucas inherits it following the suicide of his beloved uncle. But over the course of a hot, decadent summer, what begins as an idyllic retreat from the pressures of adult life is transformed into a place where secrets are revealed, sexual tensions escalate and friendships and sanity unravel - beyond repair.
