In Denial: Murder and Love
When Adam Harrison is five years old, his parents die in an unexplained private plane crash in Hong Kong and the Chinese family of one of his father's business associates adopts him. Over the next few years he becomes ever more intimate with his adoptive sister, Lucinda, until at fourteen they are discovered together naked, resulting in Adam being sent away to England in disgrace. Nevertheless, at the first opportunity, Adam and Lucinda reunite, marry and have two children. Then, one Friday night, after Adam has returned home from a week in London, he discovers his wife and both children brutally murdered. He is, naturally, the first to be suspected of the triple killing, but there are others under suspicion, and the truth as it gradually emerges with the help of two very beautiful and contrasting women - a church minister and a hired killer - is more complicated and insidious than anyone investigating the crime would have guessed. A murder mystery, a love story and a thriller, 'Brink of the Abyss' has it all from the horror of its opening to its bloody denouement.
