What begins as a beautiful evening at a party on a yacht ends with attempted murder...and a quest for revenge...
One moment Angie Morse is standing on the deck of a large luxury yacht and the next she feels a stinging blow to her head from a champagne bottle wielded by a beautiful woman. And then a push. She is in the water. She can see people on the yacht, but they don't seem to notice that she is gone, and all seem to have deliberately turned their backs as the yacht begins to slowly pull away from her. These are her friends, and one is her love. Two had a reason for getting rid of her, though she would never have thought it would come to this. Until now.
Revenge burns so deeply inside her that she knows she will survive somehow. She will get them. One way or another.
Told with Elizabeth Adler's trademark attention to luxurious detail of people and places, One Way or Another is a glamorous, twisty novel of vengeance and vindication.
Brilliantly executed and constantly surprising, this romantic thriller from bestseller Adler (Last to Know) opens on the coast of Turkey, where artist Marco Polo Mahoney observes a stunning red-haired woman fall off a boat after she receives a blow to the head. Marco dives into the sea to rescue the woman, but he's unable to find her. A few days later, Marco plans to fly to Paris to visit his girlfriend, Martha, but after his flight is canceled, he accepts an offer to ride aboard the private jet of billionaire Ahmet Ghulbian, who's also traveling to Paris. On the jet, Ghulbian shows Marco a picture of the woman from the boat, who he claims has drowned, and requests that Marco paint her portrait. Marco accepts Ghulbian's invitation to come to his remote home, Marshmallows, where Martha arrives to help with redecorating. Soon Marco and Martha are in trouble. Adler gradually reveals the depths of Ghulbian's depravity in what may well be her best book yet.

Fantastic!!!! Thoroughly enjoyed.
A boy brought up in total poverty has worked his way, however he needs to, is now in his 50's and a billionaire. He thinks anything he wants should be his and will do anything to get it. Not only was this man born in total poverty but I'm pretty sure he suffered from small penis also. What a horrible, horrible man he is.
Then an easy going artist named Marco gets involved in his attempt to rid himself of his latest conquest who knows too much.
This book had me from the very beginning. And it was one I could not put down. I found myself yelling at the characters, "no, don't do that" or "no, run, run as fast as you can". You will not like this man, Ahmet, at all. I found myself, for some reason, picturing him as a taller Danny De Vito because I've seen him play characters that were full of themselves and I just couldn't get away from it. Ha!!
This was a fantastic book that was written and had great character development. I'm still trying to figure out how that girl didn't drown though.
Thanks St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review this e-galley!! I highly recommend it!
