Kitty Gentile began her life on Manhattan's Upper West Side. A selfish and unfeeling child, she was pampered by parents too busy and accomplished to provide love and nurturing, thus contributing to her flawed development. Kitty attended exclusive nursery schools and camps, an elite boarding school and an Ivy League College before her marriage to a wealthy and faithless Chicago commodities trader triggered a high risk life style. Resettled in Manhattan, Kitty becomes a court reporter and begins a dangerous journey of seeking out men to control through daring sexual encounters until she takes on two NYPD hero Detectives, Jimmy Collins and Mike Walker. Kitty tries to dominate and then harm them through sadistic behavior, including framing one of the Detectives for murder, and attempting to copy the infamous, 1964, Kitty Genovese killing to punish the other, who had rejected her. This fast paced thriller also encounters a powerful and ruthless leader of the Russian Mafia and corrupt city officials, who Detectives Collins and Walker take down. The story is set in Forest Hills, a beautiful and exclusive oasis, Kew Gardens, and the once gritty, but now increasingly upscale Hunters Point area in the Borough of Queens and the nearby blue collar Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
