|Nothing is as
it appears. Do not assume that anything you see or hear
about me is how I really am. Everything is an
beautiful and mysterious Sylvia Reynolds discloses
this startling revelation to Earl Harris during
their first clandestine rendezvous at the quaint
and romantic Capistrano Inn, located near the
famous mission at San Juan Capistrano.
As soon as Lieutenant Commander Earl Harris meets the stunning Sylvia Reynolds, wife (or is she?) of a junior officer attached to his ship, he realizes he should walk away. But just as the swallows are drawn back to Capistrano, he finds himself inexorably drawn toward this extraordinary woman who seems to seek his friendship -- or something more.
Earl's superior officers warn him to avoid this relationship, but by then it is already too late. Fraternizing with another man's wife is contrary to his every principle, yet he finds it impossible to stop the development of this passionate, yet cataclysmic liaison.
Paradoxical clues soon begin to appear leading Earl to question the unusual relationship between Sylvia and her handsome, popular husband, Lieutenant Jerry Reynolds. Earl must keep reminding himself that nothing is as it appears, while trying to determine the horrible secrets that control this strange union. Unfortunately, by the time he discovers the true nature of the relationships, Earl has become caught up in a complex web from which he can see no means of escape. Faced with a choice of destroying the careers and lives of two men or risking his own career and loss of the woman he loves, he must take drastic steps.
