It has been twenty years since Justine Fraser last saw Nicky Bennet, twenty years since he abruptly disappeared and took off for Hollywood. Though she has gone on with her life, the memory of the tall, thin, sandy-haired boy continues to haunt her. She cannot forget his offbeat charisma, his sly half-smile, his irresistibly sexy southern drawl. She cannot stop reliving in her mind the time he surprised her by flying across the Atlantic to propose to her on a beach. But she also cannot forget the way he disappeared without a trace, never contacting her or giving her a reason for leaving.

Justine has tried to put the heartbreak of her relationship with Nicky behind her, but when reports surface that Nicky has disappeared from the set of his next film, she is forced to confront her memories of their past intimacy. The only thing that he has left behind is a mysterious and cryptic note, which Justine is sure is a message to her.

Against the advice of her friends, Justine sets off on a quest to find answers -- a journey to America, to the past, and to Nicky. What she finds will cause her to discover the real reasons behind Nicky's disappearance and come to terms with the disturbing fact that her relationship with Nicky was not exactly as she remembers it.

An unconventional love story that spans two decades, Grievous Angel is an exhilarating new novel of psychological suspense that probes the dark side of romance and memory. Mixed with tales of Hollywood glamour and paparazzi flashbulbs, Jane Hill brilliantly crafts a story of one woman's quest to put the ghosts of her past to rest through a search where nothing is as it seems, not even her own recollections.
