Hes a top distributing executive with Grants Meats, and the contract with the Portico restaurant chain is only the latest in a long line of boardroom coups. He comes for lunch, and eats his fill of his companys beef, but leaves with an entirely different hunger gnawing at his gut--a volcanic passion that will tear him apart. The hostesss name is Sally Alexis, a magicians wife whose rough-hewn charm mesmerizes this magnate of meat. She rebuffs his first pass, but calls him up later, to explain her situation and plead for tenderness. Although her marriage is miserable, shes wont leave her husband because she wants to secure an inheritance for her little boy. As the lovers get closer, Lockwood becomes an amateur illusionist himself, focusing on one very particular trick--how to make a magician disappear.
