Warren Adler stands out as one of today's most skillful storytellers, crafting tales that are provocative, intricately plotted and peopled with complicated, emotionally engaging characters. In "Mourning Glory", he once again delivers a brilliant and bitter-sweet, daring and darkly humorous story that pulls us into one woman's quest to lose herself -- and gain a fortune.

Grace Sorrentino is an attractive woman approaching 40, who is determined to jump off the treadmill of failure and despair in order to secure a worry-free future for herself and her daughter. After being fired from the cosmetics counter at Saks for being a little too honest with a good customer, Grace takes the advice of her boss and concocts a plan to reinvent herself and snare a grieving, socially-desirable rich widower in posh Palm Beach.

In order to maintain her new persona and hang on to her new life, Grace soon becomes enmeshed in a web of her own lies that will force her to confront the emotional consequences of her deception.
