PROPULSIVE AND ABSORBING… HERST AGAIN DELIVERS A WINNING, COMPLEX THRILLER.
An engrossing novel that successfully ponders the justification for revenge and yet remains suspenseful until the end.
What can I say, it had international aspects diamonds, secret clubs, love, loss, abuse, lies.
Cathy finally able to leave one hell finds herself in another at the hands of a scorned coward. Johnathan so in love and trusting doesn't see the forest doe the trees until too late. What age suffered would've driven anyone insane (temporarily)
But can I say damn Wonder Woman she got her revenge though slowly but surely.
Revenge is a dish best served cold indeed.
He fought she fought they eventually won. Hated how it ended though just a few more pages would've been superb.

In the 1750s, the Hell Fire Club was a respectable gentleman’s club, with men such as Benjamin Franklin and Sir Francis Dashwood among its members.
No one would have guessed that it was a venue for a dark subculture of sadism, torture, and human sacrifice. But after the gruesome murder of several prostitutes caused a scandal, the club was dismantled—or so history told us.
When Kathy Hunter finally gets free of her abusive marriage in modern-day Los Angeles, she moves to the South of France with Jonathan, her childhood sweetheart. Once there, all she wants is to be happy—and for a while, she is.
But evil can sneak into our lives in the subtlest of ways, and men aren’t always who or what they seem. When one fateful night changes everything, Kathy is determined to discover the truth behind the Hell Fire Club—and to make the men who brutalized her suffer just as much as she has.
