Raymond had known hardship from a very early age. He witnessed his mother’s suicide and his father’s alcoholism. Throughout his teenage years he had suffered pain and neglect and swore to make something of himself – whatever the cost. Driven by ruthless ambition and a passion for cooking almost as strong as his passion for women, he became a chef. But he wanted more.
Diane, a girl he met at a nightclub, seemed the answer to his prayers. But he didn’t account for Madge, her mum. No one was good enough for her beautiful little girl. And she would stop at nothing to get rid of him. How could he win her over? And how far would he go to satisfy his ambition and greed?
A tale of love, loss, lust, about what people will do to satisfy their needs, and how it can make or break them.
