Lucy Foster, still in her thirties, is an internet millionaire. She is a connoisseur of exploitation and manipulation, of what is so and what seems to be so. She can even turn people into successful brands. With her magic, you can convince the world that you are who you want to be. But wealth and power and sex cannot assuage her loneliness. She needs to love, not just to be loved. Can she dare? The path she takes is shocking. It could destroy her. It might redeem her and restore her humanity. This is a story of love and its absence. Those who love are easy prey for those who cannot love. For them, power is love's substitute. They own the world, but it is empty of meaning.
