Summary, etc.:
The son of a wealthy plantation owner and a doting mother, Augustus Mungo St John is accustomed to the wealth and luxuries his privilege has afforded him. That is until he returns from university to discover his family ruined, his inheritance stolen and his childhood sweetheart, Camilla, taken by the conniving Chester Marion. Fueled by anger, and love, Mungo swears vengeance and devotes his life to saving Camilla--and destroying Chester. Camilla, trapped in New Orleans and powerless to her position as a kept slave and Chester's brutish behavior, must learn to do whatever it takes to survive. As Mungo battles his own fate and misfortune to achieve the revenge that drives him, and regain his power in the world, he must question what it takes for a man to survive when he has nothing, and what he is willing to do in order to get what he wants.
