Growing up, Roxanne, Del, and Alice tested the limits of their friendship with cruel and often dangerous games - safe in the knowledge that they were bound together forever.
Now, Alice's marriage is over, and her husband is having a child with another woman.
Roxanne, an artist consumed by her work, is losing touch with her friends - and perhaps with reality. And Del is desperate to be a perfect wife and adoring stepmother, but her friends see that her careful facade is crumbling.
The instrument of their destruction is the enigmatic Varick.
He seems to be a lonely woman's dream come true, but as he seduces each of the women in turn, their lives become unrecognisable to them - and their souls, perhaps irretrievable.
Varick's secret lies buried in their shared past. One simple, childish act has brought them, all these years later, to a place where their lives are at risk.
For once upon a time, the three of them agreed to tell a lie - one that ruined a life ...And now they all must live with the consequences...
