Rachel Doe, a shy accountant, who has recently enrolled in an evening drawing class. Doe meets charismatic Ivy Wiseman--part-time model, ex-junkie, a cleaner on the night shift, survivor of divorce, homelessness and the death of her first child. During the summer, Doe learns of the drowning of Ivy's daughter and of Ivy's ex-husband Carl, a brutal and ambitious lawyer, who has custody of Ivy's second child. Ivy's parents recruit Rachel to help them to locate the elusive Carl with the purpose of making him confront the harm that he has caused. In her naive passion for doing good, Rachel locates Carl, but in her innocence, she fails to realize that in murderous family battles, there is no justice, only vendettas, and no life is sacred, least of all her own. ; [viii], 372,  pages.
