Welcome to the Hamptons, a glittering world of incredible wealth and privilege, where smiles hide secrets - and nothing is colder than revenge. It's easy to see why the Hamptons are so exclusive. But no matter how guarded they are, they can't keep the truth out forever. Meet Emily Thorne, a sexy beauty hell-bent on a mission of revenge. When she moves in, everyone wonders about the new girl, but she knows everything about them, including who they are and what they did to her family. Years ago, they took everything from her. Now, one by one, she's going to make them pay.
When it comes to revenge, money is no object, because only an eye for an eye will ever make things right. Emily's main target is Victoria, a powerful and cunning woman who holds the key to Emily's past... and perhaps her future. As we flash back and forth between the past and the present, Emily tries to ignore ties to her old life. Whatever the danger, Emily refuses to be distracted from her mission. When everything you love has been taken, revenge is all you have left.
