by Sharr White

Sacramento Premiere

Just as Juliana Smithton’s research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod, and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.
