Courtney Davis is getting divorced. The soon to be ex-husband is a world famous movie producer James Massarsky. Needless to say the divorce is messy and both sides are out to inflict as much damage as possible.
Courtney has decided to take from James something he values as much as his life. She wants to hurt him. But, there's a legend attached to the item and she remembers that legend just a little too late.
A nicely told tale of jealousy, anger, and revenge. The ending is a bit of a surprise and leaves you wondering what will happen next -- or even if something will happen.
Personally, I enjoy stories that have an ending that's ambiguous because it's up to the reader to complete the story.
