Summary Simon Lowe was a master of his craft. Handsome and charismatic, smart and urbane, he sought out and hunted down vulnerable women - usually women who had money and who craved the exhilaration of romantic love and the sex that goes with it. He told them what they wanted to hear, promised them love with the lot. This is Kay Schubach's story of what happened when she took the plunge with Simon, diving in recklessly to a new relationship and blowing up her life as she knew it. What she couldn't have foreseen was that Simon Lowe was a violent narcissist with a criminal history, who had done time for previous crimes against women. This is an insight into domestic violence in a place we don't expect to see it - Sydney with harbour views and a glass of French champagne. This extraordinarily candid account of what happened to Kay is like watching a car crash - terrible but impossible to look away. Part psychological thriller, part true crime, part cautionary tale, this is an extraordinary insight into what a woman will do for love and the promise of a baby - and at what cost
