What could be better than this . . .
To all appearances, Nick has an enviable life: his own advertising company, comfortable house in a desirable area of San Francisco, car to die for and, above all, a gorgeous wife whom he loves more than anything. But he knows that the company could fold if his latest pitch isn't successful. Trouble is, he's neglected to mention this to his wife or best friend and business partner. When they find out, they start to see him in a different light and a fatal distrust creeps in.
Oblivious to everything but the need to succeed, Nick can't see what's happening to the rest of his life. Inexorably, the destructive momentum grows and Nick is left desperately pinning his hopes on one impossible scheme. How far will he go to save his marriage? Theft? Murder? Will it really lead to something better than this?
