Abstract:

"Josie and Jack are adolescents who live in a secluded, ramshackle house with their father, a professor of physics at a nearby college. Their mother is long gone; their father is subject to fits of rage and despair. Josie and Jack are bright and beautiful, and each other"s whole world; they are not your average teenagers. Josie lives inside Jack"s love and happily submits to his control. When their father"s erratic behavior finally drives them out of their dark Eden, things get complicated, sinister, and interesting indeed. Jack is revealed to be one of recent fiction"s most seductive sociopaths. Josie follows him into dark, strange adventures with the women who become his prey. Ultimately, her boundless devotion to her brother will be his undoing. With no moral compass to guide them, Josie and Jack are thrillingly dangerous and worryingly likable. From its earliest pages to its shocking climax, this contemporary Hansel and Gretel story is compulsively readable and hugely entertaining"--Publisher's description.
