The Bride Stands Alone

At a posh Victorian home in San Francisco’s exclusive Pacific Heights, aspiring actress Kelly Myers attends a political fundraiser. There, she meets construction executive Larry Townsend. They date, fall in love, and soon make plans to marry—with the perfect honeymoon in Acapulco.

The wedding hasn’t even finished before trouble arrives. Larry is being followed and just eight days later in Acapulco he disappears while scuba diving. Kelly’s life is turned upside down as she learns her husband had a dark side and was involved in a criminal enterprise. Things seem like they couldn’t get any worse.

But when Kelly returns home to Los Angeles and finds her apartment and Larry’s house have been broken into and ransacked, it’s clear nothing is what it seems. Nothing, including Larry’s disappearance and presumed death, is an accident. And this is only the beginning.

From San Francisco and Los Angeles all the way to Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey, Jackie Ullerich weaves a tightly-woven tale of deception and greed. In the end, both good and evil prevail, leading to tragedy for some and reconciliation for others.
