Riassunto: It is desperation that inspires young widow Hannah McGarry to call Archer Donovan. She only saw the man twice in the past ten years, and he struck her as a cold, ruthless piece of work. But as a silent partner in Pearl Cove, her late husband's pearl farm business, Donovan might be willing to help her...if the price is right. At twenty-nine, Hannah has been freed to live her life again. Now she faces the mystery of her late husband's death, the prospect of bankruptcy...and the disappearance of the Black Trinity, a necklace containing a three million dollar fortune in black pearls that was supposed to be her financial security. Archer Donovan would rather forget he'd ever heard of Pearl Cove. It links him to memories of living life on the dark side, the old lure, the heart-pumping, soul-numbing certainty that there was no law, no justice, no mercy; just hunters and the hunted. That life had taught him to trust no one but family. But when Hannah McGarry calls in an old debt and offers a million dollars, Archer is plunged back into the hell he vowed never to revisit; into a deadly game of money, power, cutthroat competition, and treachery in pursuit of a stolen fortune. At his side is a woman he shouldn't want, yet cannot resist...a woman who may know more than she's telling about her husband's death...and more than is safe to know about the dark and elusive black pearls. With a feeding frenzy of human sharks on their tails, Archer and Hannah race through uncharted waters in search of the fabulous Black Trinity...and the closer they come to finding the coveted pearls, the closer they come to danger and death...and to each other.
Setting: Contemporary Seattle, Washington, and Pearl Cove, Australia
The eldest brother in one of Seattle's most powerful families, Archer Donovan is handsome, dangerous, and fascinated by pearls. He's also been in love with Hannah McGarry, his half-brother's wife, for the last 10 years. Far away in Australia, Hannah's loveless marriage ends in violence when a cyclone tears apart her pearl farm and her husband, Len, dies. But Len's death wasn't an accident; he was murdered. Desperate for help, Hannah places a call to Archer, who rushes to her side and quickly finds that powerful competitors in the pearl trade are circling Pearl Cove like buzzards.
Businessmen, criminals, and government agencies are willing to do whatever it takes to find a fabulous pearl necklace, named the Black Trinity, and to learn Len's secret formula for producing the extraordinary black pearls. Racing against time and tracked by enemies too numerous to count, Archer and Hannah begin a dangerous game of hide and seek to find Len's murderer and recover the Black Trinity. But even if the two lovers survive their adventure, will Archer find a way to convince Hannah that he's a different man from his unbalanced half-brother? And can Hannah find the courage to chance her heart and love again?
Readers who have waited impatiently for this third book about the Donovan family won't be disappointed. Lowell combines her trademark sophisticated suspense and sexual intensity with a plot rich in the fascinating lore of cultured pearls and full of Australian atmosphere and the sights and sounds of Seattle. --Lois Faye Dyer
