A mesmerizing novel of psychological intrigue written by a consummate storyteller at the height of her powers.Revenge is a riveting and psychologically complex novel of two women connected by their neighborhood, their work, and their dark stories. Andrea Geller is a young painter trapped in an obsession---a belief that her stepmother caused her father's death. Loretta Partlow is an aging, blocked world-class novelist in search of a story. As these two women spin a web that entangles them both, the novel takes us through narrative twists and turns. Revenge is part thriller, part literary tale about how stories are made and told and appropriated from other people's lives.
