Publisher's Weekly Review

Actress Eden Riley discovers her true relationship to the ``uncle'' who raised her and embarks on a steamy affair with an archeologist after she returns home to film her deceased mother's life story. ``Although one significant secret in this many-layered novel will fail to surprise readers, the brisk, atmospherically evocative narrative is absorbing reading,'' said PW.
