While investigating the cause of a mysterious death, epidemiologist Dr. Sergio Petri will enter a complex web linking a father he never knew, his half brother, and an irresistible and beautiful woman with a disturbing past. The case that brings him to Long Island’s unique society known as The Hamptons will reveal a decades-old act of vengeance, and cause terror and panic among the Hamptons’ wealthy and influential residents.

A series of events from the formation of land masses millions of years ago to mistakes made in postwar Italy, abandoned love, unexplained water pollution, and the discovery of one man’s revenge on a New World that destroyed him come together in a tale of three generations of an extraordinary family; a family in which no one is what they seem and everyone has something to protect.
