Annie and Taylor fell in love. She, a waitress and he, a financial wizard. They moved to a cabin on the slopes of Maui's Haleakala, a small piece of Hawaiian heaven with a beautiful world spread at their feet.
When Taylor suddenly dies, Annie's world dissolves.
His death reveals who he was not. His lies profound. He'd lied about an inheritance received and lied about his name - Taylor Gordon had never existed.
On a beautiful sunny day, Kensington Stone and LLoyd Moniz, fishing on Stone's yacht close to the island of Molokai, they saw and saved a woman from drowning. It was Annie Gaines.
With their help, they uncovered the truth that Gordon was not who he claimed to be and discovered the benefactor of Taylor's supposed inheritance had never existed. He had been embezzling huge sums of money.
Physical threats soon inundated Annie all because Gordon failed to realize, when he began stealing, that he was embezzling from the son of the notorious Gravello crime family from Sicily.
Anthony Gravello wanted his money back and was quite willing to go to extremes to get it - even if it cost Annie her life.
