Summer and you are best friends in high school in The Lion’s Den. Summer takes you to your high school French teacher’s apartment where his friend tries to sexually assault you. You’re sixteen.
Ten years later, Summer is now the trophy mistress of a mega-rich old man, John. She invites you and a few other female friends and family to vacation with her and John on his luxury yacht in the Italian Rivera. Before leaving John’s private plane, you are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Next, John’s goon takes everyone’s passport. Surely, there is nothing unusual in that deboarding procedure? Summer insists that is standard operating procedure for their guests. So why do you feel so uncomfortable?
So, it appears the rich are different—as are their mistresses. As the cruise carries on, it becomes apparent that John is doing shady deals and Summer has a different agenda than just vacationing with her friends and family.
The Lion’s Den is a fascinating look into how the rich live. It is the perfect beach read. It’s an intriguing and fast read. 3.5 stars!
