Summary
Returning home after nine years in prison for trying to kill the man who ran down her little boy, Alice Kessler connects with ex-Manhattan prosecutor and recovering alcoholic Colin McGinty, who has inherited his artist grandfather's Washington home, and tries to rebuild her relationship with her surviving son but finds herself struggling with the political corruption of the man she nearly murdered, who has become mayor, is paralyzed, and has taken revenge on her in a very painful way
Summary
Colin McGinty's grandfather, a famous artist, is best known for his haunting portrait Woman in Red, which happens to be of Alice Kessler's grandmother. In a tale that weaves the past with the present, we come to know the story behind the portrait, of a forbidden wartime romance between William McGinty and Eleanor Styles, and a deadly secret---one that is about to be unburied, as the ghost of an enemy from long ago surfaces in the form of Colin's grandson
