They called his wife a murderess. And his guilty passion was her only alibi.

From the back:

Bill Harding led a pleasant and peaceful existence with an adoring “perfect” wife and a secure future in his father-in-law’s powerful publishing empire.
He had all but forgotten Angelica, his beautiful, tortured first wife and the wild, Bohemian existence they had once shared.
Now Angelica was back. He had seen her. For one brief moment he had felt again the old, abandoned passion.
That one slip from reason was his undoing.
He was swept again into Angelica’s whole sordid, pitiful world. And, finally, into murder.
