Private Lies

by Warren Adler

The romance novel that sparked an unprecedented Hollywood bidding war—receiving $1.2 million—the largest sum paid for an unpublished book at its time.

Ken Kramer and his wife, Maggie, appear to have a comfortable life and loving marriage. But their peaceful life is shattered when Ken is taken along on a business dinner and introduced to Maggie’s major client, Eliot, and his wife, Carol—who happens to be Ken’s old flame. Though Carol was once the love of his life and the object of his sexual obsession as a young man, the Carol he meets seems determined to not recognize him at the dinner table. Baffled by her non-recognition, he learns that she has totally reinvented herself and snagged a rich husband who has no knowledge of her real early life. As Maggie and Eliot grow closer, the love and sexual obsession between Ken and Carol rekindles—only for the plot to thicken as both couples embark on an African Safari with startling and tragic results.
