A chilling portrait of love, betrayal and twisted passion, Lisa Phillips Visca’s world premiere thriller masters the art of seduction, deftly probing the heart of a troubled marriage and the infidelity that can shatter a family. Max Madison, renowned Malibu restaurateur, finds himself entangled in a haunting love triangle with his devoted wife and diabolical mistress. After years of unsuccessful attempts and countless fertility treatments, his wife’s ever-growing compulsion for motherhood throws Max into the arms of another woman, a modern day femme fatale who seeks revenge on the baby and their twenty-one year old son. A black widow, relentlessly weaving her web, she traps whomever she wants, whenever she wants them, with lust, leopard and lace, a needle pressed to a vein, or a gun flush against a forehead. This mistress is the devil. And the devil’s in the house.
