Unashamedly, this is a love story. What unravels here, though, is not love as a pure, immaculate emotion, but love as a weakness, an aberration and, ultimately, a tragedy.

What unravels here, though, is not love as a pure, immaculate emotion, but love as a weakness, an aberration and, ultimately, a tragedy. Sometimes love is about pain and despair and living a lie.

Sometimes it is too much for ordinary people to control. People like Gavin Lake, for instance. Gavin is twenty-seven. He lives with his widowed mother. She is well provided for, and Gavin wants for little - except perhaps another woman in his life, someone to care for him and be loved in return- someone other than Carolyn Vickers, his personal assistant at city broker Hain Maybury. I think youre going soft, mamas boy, Carolyn tells him. Gavin recoils from her accusation, not because it offends him, but because he knows she has the measure of him.

At a company party, he befriends a woman from Marketing, the coolly enigmatic Vivienne Drexler. Vivienne is thirty-nine. She is going through the motions in a loveless marriage, supported emotionally by her two teenaged children, Lizzie and James, and her sister Maria. Attracted by Viviennes charismatic vulnerability, Gavin finds himself falling in love with her, and when her husband dies suddenly, the scene is set for an affair, with Lizzie and Maria watching from a not always discreet distance.

Lizzie flatters him with her gauche pride - and Gavin, excited by her attentions, loses his focus, until an unworldly man falls headlong into a trap of divided loyalties and illicit passion. Even after his marriage to Vivienne, he cannot find a way out of this emotional maze. The trouble is, perhaps he doesnt want to. Instead, he risks everything for a hopeless vision of happiness. But this is a game where no-one wins, and so to a story of destructive passions and the waywardness of ordinary human emotions, there can be no neatly-packaged happy ending.

If Gavin Lake is a modern man, the frailties undermining his quest for peace and love are age-old and eternal. They, more surely than his innate goodness or his faltering resolve, are the elements that destroy.
