This book is a meticulous study of neurosis and revenge when a young woman is unable to get over being ditched by her lover.

Georgia Stekker is very beautiful, extremely intelligent, and smart in money matters. She is also poor in a rich man's world which is why her fortune hunter boyfriend dumps her for another, wealthy woman.

Following a nervous breakdown after the breakup, Georgia learns from a disillusioned older woman how to deceive and rip off men who prey on women. As a spurned woman, Georgia is a fury waiting to be unleashed and for a long time she takes it out on other men. Until she realizes her only option is revenge; show the bastard what he lost and then get even with him.

Writing is very good; starts off a bit old-fashioned and alters in keeping with the times. I liked how the author dropped clues as to time changes through clothing, hair color, men's dress, and speech.

This insightful book took this reader into the heart of the matter but not into the heart of the protagonist. Georgia always remains distant, someone the reader can admire and even understand, but never get close to.
