Three women scarred by a chain of misogyny and death at the hands of a secret brotherhood seek a reckoning.
The Lost Boys, an exclusive group of wealthy and powerful men, have built an impregnable empire by preying on rich and troubled women. Within the stately confines of an Adirondack fortress they lay the plans that carry them around the globe, infiltrating lives and fortunes. Their depredations, ingeniously disguised, have devastating consequences.
At seventeen, Evie Quimby, raised wild and poor in the Adirondacks, attracts the attention of the most predatory of the Lost Boys. When his obsessive interest turns into horrific violence, it sets off a chain of events that shatters Evie’s life. Years later, it costs Evie the one thing she can’t bear to lose. But when an investigation into a murdered Lost Boy pulls Evie back into their snare, Evie bands with her formidable mother and an embattled heiress, both victims of the Lost Boys, in pursuit of an unusual and heart- stopping vengeance.

“A sprawling baroque thriller that had me in its grip all the way.” - Richard E. Grant, Oscar-nominated actor, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
“Dirk Wittenborn understands that traditional male society is fragile and justifiably endangered. His vibrant female characters refuse to turn themselves into commodities or victims. Suspenseful, witty and wise, it is a compelling thriller.” - Susanna Moore, author of Paradise of the Pacific
