When Theo meets American heiress Sylvie de Croy, he is welcomed into her inner circle - the Happy Valley set - rich, dazzling expatriates, infamous for their scandalous lifestyles.
Yet behind Sylvie's intoxicating allure lies a powerful cocktail
of secrets, lust and betrayal. As dark clouds gather over Kenya's future and his own, Theo must escape this most unsuitable woman - before it is too late.
