(From the publisher):
While Carrie Foster was still at school she stole money to finance the illicit trips she made to London when her mother and stepfather thought she was with her friend Arlene. At first her expeditions were innocent enough, but then she met someone with his own secrets who taught her another way of making easy money.
Three years later she met Gordon Matthews, an older man who said his wife had left him. Carrie was attracted by his apparent poise, and she felt sorry for him. It was not until after they were married that she began to feel curious about her predecessor. Soon, bored by Gordon and their life in Meddingham, where she worked in a department store, she started supplementing her income by working the West End again. Then she met Nicholas, who lived with his grandmother, and who must not suspect the true reason for her weekly journeys.
