Left for dead at sea ?
She would be rescued by an Englishman and slowly the horrific truth would unfold.
Her ex husband now back in Shanghai would tell everyone she was dead.
He would take her fortune and set up his own business empire.
It would take 5 years until Ariadne would start to take her revenge working with the guy she had come to trust above all others, someone who had the money and the business acumen, to help the woman he had rescued AND fallen in love with.
Together they would have the power to bring the would be murderer to his knees in a slow but sure execution that would destroy his empire, take from him all he had taken from her.
