“I’m not a plug-ugly, not a hoodlum, not a gangster. I have no interest in the motives of those who retain me. I command high fees because I’m an expert and because there is a great element of risk. I am in the business of sleep…without dreams. Pretty isn’t it, Mr. Winston?”
To the very respectable Carter Winston it was anything but pretty. But at the time, this man’s unique specialty seemed Winston’s only answer to a wife as vicious as she was faithless, a wife who would never divorce him, and whom he could never divorce.
And when Carter Winston, also a successful businessman, suddenly changed his mind, he knew this was one deal he would have to cancel – or die trying.
