Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Nord Lafferty was already in his fifties when Reba was born and he could deny her nothing. Her father got her out of many scrapes over the years, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institute for Women. It's a complex and clever money-laundering scheme and is just a cover for a novel that is all about love, love gone wrong, love betrayed and love denied.
