It's the swinging sixties, and Kelton MacLeod is on a year's scholarship at Aberdeen University.  When local girl Carol falls for his easy American charm, she abandons family, friends and her fiancé to run off with Kelton to St Louis, Missouri.

Smooth as silk, more slippery than soap, he is driven by boundless ambition.  But too late, Carol discovers she has sacrificed everything for a psychopathic womaniser.  Astounding business acumen propels Kelton's career in corporate pharmaceuticals, while his lies and manipulation make him the husband – and the boss – from hell.

Yet what goes around comes around ... so will the long memories of all those he has wronged prove to be his undoing?
