It's a weekend in 1938 at Waterfalls, the Santa Cruz summer estate of San Francisco millionaires Chester and Lily Moreland. The occasion is their daughter Abigail's fortieth birthday.

Many guests have arrived and it is easy to place yourself in the picture. To enjoy the lush surroundings, the quiet chatter of the guests, the gourmet food served, and to walk the many trails on the estate. To gaze on the three sparkling waterfalls. All seems serene Even the weather cooperates. However, under a fašade of celebration, simmer tensions in the real lives of those involved.

It is always intriguing to be allowed to venture into a world that is not part of your own. Author Bradford Dillman is not only a retired actor of stage, screen, and television but also an acclaimed writer. Beneath the Third Waterfall is his fourth novel. In this one he is not only able to recreate the 1930s but also to capture the imagination with an ending I did not expect.
