With her husband Charles Mannering, Decima lives at Roshven, her family’s ancestral estate on the savage coast of Scotland. Rachel finds her friend greatly changed from the carefree girl she once knew. As soon as they are alone, Decima confesses that Charles is planning to kill her; that he married only to inherit Roshven, which will be his if she dies before she is 21.
