In the summer of 1970, four young men-Ethan Roberts, Zeke Blackstone, and brothers Eric and Jack Shannon-shared apartment 1G at the Wilshire Arms. One night during a wild party, Eric Shannon committed suicide.
Or so everyone thinks.
Although Jack Shannon was only 18 years old at the time, he has always felt responsible for his brother's suicide. Unable to deal with his guilt, Jack spends the next 25 years as a rootless vagabond, reporting on war and disaster in all the hot spots of the world.
Now, world-weary and heart-sore, Jack makes a last-ditch effort to lay the ghost of his long-dead brother to rest by returning to the Wilshire Arms.
There, Jack meets Faith McCray. Newly arrived in L.A. from a small town in Georgia, Faith is everything Jack wants-and everything he thinks he doesn't deserve.
But Faith isn't quite as innocent and guileless as she seems. With ghosts of her own and a past she'd rather forget, nothing will dissuade her from tempting Jack to take what she offers.
